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.

Hi Kathy, having a last peep here before retiring for the night! Some of my seeds seem to be forging ahead, quicker than last year I am sure. It is getting to the point where they need to be planted out, cross fingers, arms, legs. My/my sister are embarking on our first year with a lottie, soooo want it all work. Just have to think that all that comes up and harvests is good as it has all been grown from seed in a bedroom and conservatory in Suburban London.
Regards and a pat for Skippy boy.

I'm a growing zinnia's from seed as well, a dwarf one called 'Magellan Mix'. I looked for them as transplants last year and couldn't find them anywhere so seeding it is.

You plants are looking great in the photos below.
