This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Early girl tomato

This tomato was delicious! I put the dates of the pictures in the lower right corner. (Click on the picture to enlarge it.) The flower bloomed on June 22. About 40 days from flower to ripe tomato.

Solanum lycopersicum

Very cool post. I am keeping a blog of my garden this year and I have some early girls in the garden. They just started to flower (June 9). Check it out; I have lots of other neat stuff growing as well. http://canadiangardenjournal.blogspot.com/

I just bought one Early Girl plant, I planted it in a pot. The plant is close co one foot above the roots. I can move it into and out of the sun as needed, however how long should I leave it in full sun? We are in mid to south Texas, temp goes up and down, now in the 90s.
