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.

my side yard garden

aerial April 22 2010

Lots of chores after returning home to my gardens:

- To all side yard beds, added composted, turned and buried irrigation lines
- Potatoes planted in far left bed: All Blue, Cobbler, Green Mountain and Butte Russet. I'll leave the irrigation line above the soil for now in this bed.
- Marigolds planted along front of cold frame
- Spread old salt hay between beds (not quite enough - I'd like to get more)
- Admired all the green in the cold frame

Is your irrigation system like a soaker hose (millions of micron holes) or does it have drip emitters?

You're garden is starting to take off!

My irrigation system has little holes in solid tubing. I like it because it has lasted for nearly 10 years now. Soaker hoses need to be replaced yearly I think.

I will add a label/link to info on the system.
