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.

Baby squashes



I think my fertilizing may have helped to encourage female squash flowers. There are MANY of them budded now (though I haven't seem any blooms yet). At least half of all the youngest flower buds are female (have fruits). The plants still look pretty good - no sign of squash stem borers yet. Its probably a good time to spray the stems and fertilize again (the last time I did was July 27).
