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 planting list

Today I planted:

4 9-packs of lettuce
4 9-packs of soybeans

Since I couldn't decide on only a couple types of lettuce, I just mixed and scattered seeds for 12 different varieties in the cells.

Both of these will stay inside til the seedlings sprout. Then I'll put the lettuce trays out in the sun. I am keeping the soybeans inside for a while this year as yet another attempt to prevent chipmunks from eating the seeds. Last two years I have found they will eat ALL the seeds I plant until the plants are at least 3-5 inches tall.
