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.

seedlings by the window

peppers by the window
These are my pepper seedlings. They have a nice spot in a south facing window over looking the garden. They aren't getting much sun since its very overcast and still raining out there.

I noticed that the soil temperature under the black plastic layer in my garden is the same as the soil temperature in the beds without plastic. I guess that's what happens when there is no sun.

What a fun picture! Those seedlings are looking longingly at their future home, I think!

Wow the photos of your garden in your side bar are just stunning! I love how you've done all the seasons :)
I haven't started my peppers yet due to the seed company I ordered from but I have started my tomatoes and a few other seeds. I just love making those little pots! This year we made a germination box and I'm pretty impressed with it.
Good luck with your garden this year, I can tell you are very good at it!

That really is a great picture. Present and future in the same shot. Dr. Mom is right, its as if they are looking out the window just as you are, waiting for the day to be out there in the garden!

Also, thanks for adding me to your garden blogs list!
