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.

my first tomato seedling

Psychedelic celebration...
tom 6 tom 3
tom 1 tom 2

This is a New Girl tomato seedling planted 10 weeks before the last frost in my garden. That's 4 weeks early. I have 9 very early tomatoes that sprouted this week. I can almost taste sweet red early tomatoes!

Question for you: I've got my tray of seedlings started for my first venture into vegetable gardening. I've grown some things from seed in the past, but my losses are greater than my victories. They all sprout up so happily, but I have a tough time transitioning from that first sprout to growing those first true leaves. Now that I've got a tray full of those seedlings, is there anything I should be doing to get them to that next phase?
