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.

Dad's garden

I've been spending some time with my parents. Today I planted:

Potatoes, Red Gold, 5 ft row
Potatoes, Fingerling, 5 ft row
Potatoes, Russet, 5 ft row
Dill, 5 ft row
garlic transplants, 8 ft row

Dad's peas are up 2 inches now. Lots of them. Lettuce and beets from direct seedings too. My dad likes rows really straight. I planted 2 rows for him and did my best. The kids from next door ran over and helped lay out the spuds. They gave them names and said they will watch for sprouts. I only make it up there once a week or so.

Yes, we're hoping he's feeling better and back in his garden soon. Thanks Jennifer.
