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.

first seeds of the season are planted!

I planted 6 6-packs of seeds today!!! My planting 2011 garden season has officially begun!

1 6-pk leeks
1 6-pk onions (Ailsa Craig)
1 6-pk onions (Frontier)
1 6-pk lettuce mix
1 6-pk endive mix
half 6-pk perennial purple broccoli
half 6-pk celeriac

I had written my plant labels a couple days ago, but didn't end up planting, so I changed all the 1-25's to 1-28. Nice to know they are now starting to come to life.

I love starting seeds too. It means the warmth of spring and the joy of freshly grown produce is just around the corner. We are starting our seeds this weekend as well.

If you are starting seeds now will you need to transplant a few times before they can go outside?

I am very jealous. We have been having very warm weather here in Western Washington and was thinking about stsrting early this year (like 3 month early). But then this morning was freezing and I am going to wait it out. Did I mention I was jealous. :) Congrats on the start of a new year.

Kathy -- What do you plan to do with the lettuce and endive? Will you transplant outside?

Kathy.. Your spinach in the coldframe looked terrific! I started a bunch of stuff here last week and then again over the weekend and already have germination on fennel, broccoli, cabbage and lots of lettuces. When will you move your new little sprouts to the coldframe?
