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.

surprise vegetable

My little surprise seedlings are doing well - growing into cute little plants. Maybe a Chinese green or a special broccoli? Dan said to plant them 5 inches apart, so I planted them about 3 inches apart. Since he said to treat then like broccoli, I planted them next to my broccoli seedlings and covered them both to protect from cabbage worms.

Brassicaceae


By the way, we grilled some young bok choy this weekend and it was delicious. My husband sliced it in half, brushed with olive oil and then roasted it over the fire. A wonderful flavor.

Great garden pictures. I had thought of making little greenhouses out of my box gardens this year, but didn't get around to it.
