This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

today's garden work

It was very hot at 9am in the garden this morning (about 80*F, 27*C), but I got a bunch of seeds planted:

Beans, Roma bush and Tavera filet beans
Dill, Boquet and Mammoth
Borage
Radish
Carrots, Mokum
and POPCORN!!! Golden baby

I planted twice as much popcorn as last year. It sure was yummy!

80? Here in Northern California it's been 59, windy and raining for the past two weeks. Usually it would be in the 70s or 80s. I haven't been able to do all my planting due to the gusty winds. I just love watching your garden progress. It's very inspirational to read your daily blog. Thanks.

Love your garden. What I would give for 27 Deg C! that's our Spring in February :D

The plants don't know what to think of this warm weather -- and neither do I. But, like you, I've been planting away. Popcorn, that I have yet to try. But since it's our favorite wintertime treat, maybe I'd better! Thanks for the inspiration...
