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.

lots of lettuce

lettuce 002

Still plenty of lettuce coming from my cold frame. I've been picking it for a full month now. I have about 10 heads left in the frame and by the time they're gone, the row I planted next to my tomatoes should be ready. I planted 4 9-packs with about 12 different varieties yesterday. I LOVE fresh lettuce!

I always seem to end up with a huge glut of lettuce! I guess it's because just planting 6 seeds at a time doesn't seem like enough at the time! I've taken to picking a couple of leaves off each plant as I go along.

Hi! I found your blog after searching for tips on saving leggy broccoli! Love to see whar you're growing - today I thinned out Courgette's and Leeks :)

Great ours is a little slow on the Lottie probably because the weather cannot make up it's mind.
