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.

planting squash seeds

Skippy and I planted squash seeds today. Its a really sunny warm day (80F) and I'm guessing the soil is above 60F now. I turned over the soil to mix in all the compost I added to the squash bed. Looks like great soil. I put the cucumber trellis at the back of the bed and made three hills for three different types of summer squash at the front of the bed. I planted seeds for two types of cucumbers (Diva and sriped Armenian) and three summer squashes (zucchini, caserta, and sunburst). I have forgotten what the last two look like and I am looking forward to being surprised by the fruits.
