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.

July 10, 2006





On June 20 (20 days ago), I had my first tomato flower. Five days later I was able to photograph a tiny a baby tomato. Here it is now - growing up into a big guy (a Supersonic). Our weather has been good, so it might ripen right on schedule: July 20th (10 more days).

(My brother is going to come visit once the tomatoes start ripening, so he can make a note ....)

Solanum lycopersicum
