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.

Lettuce










I think lettuce is my most useful crop. We've been eating it nearly every dinner for a month now. It tends to bolt, so I plant it thick and just harvest the tallest plants to make room for the smaller ones. I think this variety is called Buttercrunch Bibb. I keep planting more lettuce seeds every few weeks, when I see some spaces where it might fit. I have two nice mixes with endive that I am planting now. I have read that I can keep planting lettuce through August.

Lactuca sativa
