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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

It's so great that you plant your parents garden! I gardening addicts just can't get enough! I am going to plant my in-laws vegetables in the next couple of days. They will be very surprised when they return from Italy.

I'm in the Piedmont of 7
My black seeded simpson is almost
ready to start cutting & Swiss Chard looks great.
I'm looking for a different type
bean to plant this year besides
the usual blue lake - any ideas?
Also looking for tips to keep
squash bugs at bay!

What happens to the plastic when it decomposes?

Does the chemical get absorbed by the plants?
