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.

Tomorrow I am planning to start my planting. First I'll clean some old seed trays using a diluted bleach solution. Then select seeds - only a few pots so early for planting in my cold frame. A lettuce mix, celery, onions. Maybe herbs and flowers too. My shelves and lights are ready to go.

How exciting! I don't have grow lights or space so we're not starting ours until March.

Hi! You planted them in the house, but then, where transplanting them?

Thanks for the reviews. Fabulous. And amazing cost analysis. I have been pathetic at keeping track of costs etc. This year!

Vasi, I will transplant my seedlings into my cold frame in about 2 months - mid March. It should be warm enough in there by then for lettuce, onions and other cold hardy vegetables. Then in April or May I will move them out into the open garden.

I started my seeds in the front window on a steel wire cart also. I do not use any lights, just sun, our house faces South-West.
