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.

They looks so pretty. I never have such a pretty group. I sow just a small patch at a time and they are all different sizes. Just part of one row will be the same size. I'm the only one that eats lettuce in my house.

How beautifully organized, and not a slug-hole in sight!

I sowed these inside in little 6-pack pots, one seed per cell. I watched my local CSA farmer do it this way. Very professional. Then I transplanted to the garden at proper spacing for nice heads. I love the way they look.

I do have to keep an eye out for slugs, but its still too cold for them here. Usually not til July.
