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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

a pea sprout!

pea sprout
Definitely a cause for celebration! I found a little green pea sprout out in the rain today. A Sugar Spring snap pea. Yippee! Not much to look at yet.

These were planted on March 18th (17 days ago).

I noticed some spinach sprouts today that I also planted on March 18. Maybe we are turning the corner. Indeed a reason to celebrate!

I planted peas indoors and they sprouted very quickly. I grew them for the sole purpose of eating pea shoots, so I've already harvested some.

What a great idea - to plant peas just to eat the sprouts!. I am making a special point this year to plant enough seeds to eat lots of tendrils! I bet the shouts are even sweeter.

hi Arthur, Turning the corner into spring! As I look up into the trees, which are ALMOST starting to leaf, it seems sooo close. Soon it will be a green warm hot humid summer. The anticipation is probably the best time of year.

- spinach sprouts sound good. I have a package of spinach seeds to go in tomorrow. I've never grown spinach, but we do eat it often.

hi Alec, I'll have to go out with my camera soon to show what's blooming here. I LOVE your daffodil photo on your blog. Here we have a few daffodils just opening today. And I think maybe the quince down the road will bloom very soon. The silver and swamp maples have frilly red blossoms this week. No cherries yet. But soon...
