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.

garden work

Instead of taking pictures today, I actually did some work in the garden. I pulled up the blighted pole beans (instead of complaining about them some more) and prepared the soil to plant lettuce. I harvested a big pile of green beans. I moved the bean poles to another spot where I will try planting shell beans. I also transplanted my cukes from the far back corner of the garden where they were getting thoroughly shaded between the summer squash and my big rose plant. I moved them into well amended soil in the spot when the big rhododendron was. Surprisingly enough, my fall broccoli has sprouted in 2 days! I moved the little seedlings outside to get some extra sun.
