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.

red summer crisp

red summer crisp lettuce

This is the lettuce I have been growing this summer. Red Summer Crisp from Johnny's. It has grown slow in the heat, but has not bolted. A beautiful shade of dark red in full sun, light/brighter red underneath my tomato plants.

The flavor is good. The pretty pinkish color is the best, as well as the ability to hold up in the summer heat.
