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.

empty plant shelves

empty plant shelves

My husband brought the plant shelves and lights up from the basement today and assembled everything. Looks like a new garden ready to go. This is the only window in the house that gets beautiful full sun all day long in the winter. Its high enough to be out of the shadow of the neighboring house. And it faces directly south. I often find Skippy stretched out in the puddle of sunlight on the rug here.

I've had bad luck trying to start my own seeds. Any tips?

Are those grow lights?
