This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

no tomatoes yet

Today was supposed to be the day. I was trying to get a ripe tomato 2 weeks earlier than last year. I bought bigger plants and planted them in a warmer location than last year. Everything was going well. The plants bloomed very early. But now they are ripening slowly. Lots of green tomatoes today, but no red ones. I'll keep an eye on them. That first tomato is always exciting.

Solanum lycopersicum

I'm still waiting for my first ripe tomato, too.

I am awaiting my first as has turned a nice shade of pink, so it won't be too long. :-)
