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.

carrot seedlings

carrots 2
carrots 3 carrots 1
I planted three types of carrots this year. Two orange varieties and a purple one. The orange heirloom called "Oxheart" is produces a 6 inch root, 4 inches wide and over 1 pound! I'm looking forwar to this. It looks like I'll need to do some serious thinning of all of the carrots. I tried to scatter the seed thinly this year, but still a million little plants.


Daucus carota
