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.

scented seedlings

lavender tomatoes

A couple of my seedlings smell great already. The best is the lavender. I only have 4 tiny little plants, growing very slowly, but they have a strong and wonderful scent.

Other scented seedlings are basil, thyme and tomatoes. If I move trays of any of these, its like being in the garden and smelling the air and sunlight.

I was told rabbits do not eat lavender. Yes they do, all the lavender which was poking through my fence has been neatly nibbled off by those long eared, cute pests.

Yummy! I just love lavender! That reminds me- I think I need to shear mine off now. Happy spring to you!

I'm getting about 1 lavender sprout for 50 seeds planted. Wish I could do better.
