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.

black seeded simpson

lettuce simpson
Its a good year for lettuce. This is black seeded simpson that I grew from a free trial package of seeds from Sand Hill Preservation Center. Its an heirloom lettuce that grows very fast. We have been eating little seedlings that I thin out for a week now. After I thin it a bit more, its recomended to harvest it by scissoring at the base and then letting the leaves grow back.

Lactuca sativa

Are you suppose to thin lettuce into little groups or something?
