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.

The plants look fantastic!I think I may have torched a good number of tomato and peppers when I put them out for some sun the other day. I saw a comment that someone else had done the same; they may come back.If they do I will have some to give the neighbor who is back from Florida. I am very impatient for the warmer nights so I can get some in the ground. I do have onions and peas ( I think ) coming up. Yeah!

What lovely babies you have there! I have been taking pics of mine, but haven't made a post yet. I have started the hardening off process at a small size, because I don't want to plant them in bigger pots if I can help it.

Great pics!

Isn't it just so exciting to watch the seedlings germinate and grow. Every day there is something new to look at.
