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.

tomato seedlings

trays 3
tomango purple calabash
san marzano giant belgium
tomato tray 1 trays
They're small, but I have lots of varieties. And they are growing well. I bring the tomatoes outside for extra light when the temperature is above 50 F. Otherwise, they are on a window sill.

Solanum lycopersicum

They look so healthy! I'm in the process of transplanting mine into the garden. Here in the South days are getting hotter with still a slight (very) chill in the air. I am enjoying your blog so much. Thanks for all the insight and inspiration you've given me and the rest of the gardening community.

I'm a relatively new gardener and I find myself drawn to your blog. I enjoy looking at all the pictures, especially the vegetables.

Nice seedlings. What kind of soil are they in? Do you use any fertilizer?

Great looking seedlings! I'm in NJ and have a much smaller vegetable plot than you do. Thank you for your inspiration.

My seed trays all have Miracle Gro potting soil. I get the mega bag at Costco in the spring for a good price. It has fertilizer adder already. Occasionally, I need to add more - my peppers look like they could use more now. I keep trying to remember to do this.

Thanks for the nice comments!
