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.

mail ordered garlic

garlic

Two of the garlic varieties I ordered have arrived. I'm still waiting for two more from a different company. I hope to have lots of garlic next year. I love the look of great big heads on the right.

Hi, I was just at your sight today, trying to figure out how to best plant garlic.

I tried to get out to plant my garlic today but the ground is so dry it is like concrete! I watered it for a while and will try again tomorrow!

Our soil is too wet!

I'd like to do some garden work tomorrow, so I hope it will dry up soon. I'd like to get the corn and tomato plots cleared out, potatoes dug and cover crop seed planted.
