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.

Certainly taking advantage of the good weather!!
I won't be able to visit my plot until sunday but my plan involves planting some pole beans, summer squash and cucumbers. Lots and lots of weeding are also called for!

Glad to see spring has really arrived in/around Boston!

You have peas? I still only have flowers on one variety out of three. But they didn't emerge from the soil until March 31st in my garden, so they still have a week or so before I start to worry.

The blooms will come! Different pea varieties all bloom at different times. Its a good reason to plant several varieties to spread out the harvest season.

I am so curious about how you string your tomatoes! My husband and I are trying to decide on the best way to keep our plants supported this year.
