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.

Vegetable harvest

I'm trying to keep a record of most of my vegetable harvests. Here's another bowlful. Several tomatoes (I'm picking 2-3 a day now - Early Girl and Supersonics), my second yellow squash, a couple of cukes (I get about 1 cuke a day) and several jalepeno peppers (which look more like thin-skinned sweet Italian pepper to me, though they are HOT). Also, planty of basil and parsley. The lettuce is not producing now and young seedlings are not growing well. Too hot I guess.

Cucumis sativus

Those don't look like jalapeno peppers to me, either. They look more like sweet banana peppers. Maybe a mix up at the garden center if you bought the plants?
