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.

Tall tomato vines









The tomato plants are 6 feet tall already this year! Lots of green tomatoes on the vines, just not alot ripening yet. A few ripe ones here and there. I've picked about 3 or 4 so far, plus a number of cherries. I have mostly Early Girl and Supersonic, plus a couple red and yellow Brandywine.

Solanum lycopersicum

Would you mind if I did a post about your blog with the link and your tomato vine idea?
It would be great inspiration at this time of year? I`d like to include a couple of your pictures too?
