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.

pepper sprouts

skip and sprouts
Skippy is keeping an eye on my pepper sprouts. I don't know what I'm going to do with all these pepper plants.

But, I do know what I'd like to do with the peppers: POPPERS! I'm bookmarking the recipe at Danielle's Florida garden here.

oh no, my father-in-law was right--our pepper planting last night is probably too late, isn't it, if your pepper plants are looking so beautiful already =( i'm a first-time gardening hunting around blogland for inspiration, your raised beds look fantastic!

Wow! That's a lot of peppers! I have grown far too many pepper plants, too. I will probably give some away to members of our community garden.

HI Christa,
Glad to hear your peppers are doing well too. I will probably have many to give away too. Good luck with your potatoes!

CD & SP,
I bet your peppers will do fine. You'll just have a harvest that starts a bit late. Last year my purchased peppers produced for several months. I think I started picking peppers early August. This year, I planted my peppers on March 15th and kept the seeds at least 75F. Remember to keep your seeds warm! Good luck.
