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.

That's quite a timeline. As I follow your harvest through your blog, I am always impressed by how much produce you get from your garden.

Program? Well, I looked back through my blog to get the planting and harvesting times. Then I did the diagram using PowerPoint. I just eyeballed the bars - its not an excel graph or anything. Just squares and text. I do very accurate graphing of this sort professionally (with medical research data) but didn't go all out here.

Great resource - I used the timeline in a school vegetable greenhouse feasability project!
