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.

Those greens are making me soooooooo hungry! I can't wait until mine are ready to harvest, too.

My spinach was nearly three feet tall - very bolted. But the leaves were still nice. And at least the miners I had early this spring went away.

Beautiful!! we've unfortunately had 5 hail storms the last 3-4 weeks which has mostly destoyed the veggie garden, the clouds are once again rumbling so I've covered the thrice planted tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. I'm just glad we aren't farmers!

I envy the spinach. Mine, though super-tasty, just wasn't that prolific--and now it's bolted.
