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.

one of my favorite gardens

Not my garden, but I wish it was.

I'm taking pointers from watching this gardener. Well spaced plants. Lots of soil covers. Beautiful varieties - great big dill, big purple eggplants.... And I LOVE the blue door. I'm always thinking of what to do with may garden next year, and here are definitely some ideas.

Oh Yeah it looks lovely. I question, do you have a slug problem? if so how do you 'control' them?

No slug problems this year. I'm not sure why, it is very damp.

In the past I have used slug pellets around the basil and lettuce, since I don't know of an organic approach.

Maybe someone else has ideas.
