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.

seedlings in the sun

seedlings 044

All my seedlings are outside on the porch again this week. They are staying out night and day with this balmy weather. We are flipping back and forth from pouring to perfect weather.

I am hoping to plant my early tomato seedlings outside in the garden soon using my new Wall-O-Waters. Its a busy weekend, but I hope to oi this soon. They are getting quite big. I planted lots more tomatoes last week and they have just come up.

I really really enjoy your blog. I am happy to see that I am not the only one in zone 6 with tomato plants that big! This is only the 3rd year I have been planting everything from seed. I started my tomatoes the same time as last year and they are twice the size! I think that next year I will start some later.

Wish I was where you are - we're freezing over here and there's no way I can get very much started. Lovely seedlings.

Your seedlings look wonderful. Mine made it outside this week to enjoy the warm temps also.

I've been using wall-o-water's for quite a few years. They are great and allow us to put our tomato plants out in the garden at least a month earlier than we could put out unprotected plants. We still have our original set from probably 10 years ago and keep re-using every year. We fill the sections and immediately place over a tomato transplant. Have never waited 5 days to use them.

Those early tomatoes look excellent! I have had no luck with my early tomatoes this year. Hope the main crop grows better.
