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.

Hi Kathy, looking great. I notice you have 'Marathon' is that Broccoli Marathon, I have been thinking about getting that and one also 'Tender Stem' which John and I enjoy; it is very expensive in the Supermarket.
Your Hollyhocks look good, only 3 of the 10 seeds I sowed came up. You obviously have magic green fingers.

Your seedlings look great. Mine aren't bad, but not as sturdy-looking as yours.

Think it's ever going to stop being cold here in MA? I get sooooo impatient!

Hi Kathy,
I came here via June Fuentes blog, "A Wise Woman Builds Her Home." I'm excited about reading your blog, and thankful to have been led here!

Marian, Yes, Marathon is broccoli. A new variety I'm trying this year. Also Blue Wind. And the ones I grew last year Green Sprouting Calabrese and another I forget the name of.

I got 8 hollyhocks from 12 seeds planted. Maybe yours will come up yet. I was surprised by 2 little eggplants that came up three weeks after planting many seeds. Better than none - I had given up.

Safira, Today will be 60*F!!! Awesome. I'll be in the garden a bit. (Don't tell my boss....)

I am envious of your basil seedlings - mine are JUST now starting to peek through. Since this is my first veggie garden and I am flying by the seat of my pants, it's good to know that you too have issues with eggplant - I may have to resort to buying some from our local greenhouse - better than not having any at all, eh?

Great seedlings ! I must remember to label mine next year. The tomatoes and peppers are finally going, the broccoli has been growing and one of the cantalope seeds finally sprouted. Gonna move some to bigger containers today. Keep up whatever you are doing. I am alos waiting for warm weather, last nite was below freezing.:(

Barely any of my basil seedlings germinated, and the ones that did all died soon after. But maybe I'll try again! Yours certainly do look lovely.

Kathy, your seedlings so rock! They look a hell of a lot better than mine!! I hope my plantings are not a dismal failure this year as they (I was) were last year. Here are a bunch of photo's thus far. Anyone, feel free to comment....I need all the help I can get! lol

This weekend I'm going to start my Sugar Baby Watermelon, Alaska & Hale's Best melons, and 3 kinds of cukes; Straight 8, Pearl and Cool Breeze. The turnip, radish, peas and carrots still need to go into the ground, HOPEFULLY, next Friday. All of these rainy days have set me back some.
