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.

seedlings

More sprout photos. I got out my macro. Its like having a cute baby to photograph... just greener... If I watch long enough, I can almost see them grow....

Sprouts in these trays are: onions, kale, peppers, lettuce and escarole. Seeded, but no sprouts yet, are: asters, cosmos and marigolds.

Kale (Brassica oleracea, Acephala Group)
