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.

planting before the rains

Today, in my home garden, I transplanted kale, broccoli and lettuce seedlings. I didn't realize I had so many. I also sowed seeds of radish, peas (Pisselle, Sugar Sprint, Tall Telephone and Capucijners) and fava beans. Rains are forecast, which should water them in well.

I feel like this is your garden's first day of spring.

We're on latitude 47, you 42.
(Western Washington).

The Russian Kale does very well here. Overwinters flawlessly, is handsome and useful.

I like your site and pics very much. Susan
