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.

nothing but mud still

community plot
I went over to check on my community plot today. No sprouts yet. I looked close, but no carrot or parsnip or onion or potato sprouts. Just mud. We've have a lot of rain and cool (40-50F) weather this week. The only new thing at the plot is the cute (silly?) little plastic wheelbarrow and a hose that I just bought.

The seeds I planted on Sunday aren't up yet either. I was sure that at least the radishes would have popped up, but no luck. BTW the wheelbarrow is definitely cute and not silly. Mine looks silly. It is totally falling apart, but it still works (mostly) so I keep using it.

Even without anything in coming up in your garden it looks lovely.
