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.

Happy eggplants

I'm pleased with the way the eggplants look. After removing the 3 treehopper nymphs and a quick spray with nasty stuff (Sevin), they seem to be doing well. Some fruits are beginnning to form. Many blossoms. The 2 plants girdled by the treehoppers lost all their original leaves, but have many little new leaves coming and even those plants, though small, look sort of OK now. I check closely for more hoppers, but haven't found any more. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
