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.

thinning carrots

thinning carrots
I tried to seed the carrots more thinly this year, but still they have ended up very dense. I am starting now to thin them. They are still too small to eat. I thin them gradually - soon the baby roots will be large enough to munch on as I continue to thin the rows.

Daucus carota

Again I clumsily sowed the last lot and had to spend ages thinning them out. Most of the roots became intertwined, but at least it speeded the job up!

The thinnings can be used in soups and stews!
