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.

Carrots




















My mom helped me thin my carrots today. The row is sooo thick its taken over half of a raised bed. (It was only one packet of seeds!) I've been pulling a few now and then, but it needed more work than that. I was glad I could recruit some help. The good news is that the carrot roots are getting nice and big now. Edible size. Yum!

Daucus carota
