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.

my plot

my plot 6
my plot 2

Garden notes:

Very late peppers and tomatoes. And small onions. That's from planting outside too early this spring into my cold frame. An experiment.

As usual, my garden plot is way overgrown - I like to squeeze in as much as I can.

Beautiful popcorn, potatoes, garlic and eggplants. It may be a good year for my melons finally - fingers crossed as they continue to ripen and grow.

OMG! I thought you looked familiar! I met you in your plot at Victory Gardens on Wed. I was with my mother in law and my husband. I found your site last fall and found it most helpful in planning our garden this past spring. Hope to see you again!! Jeanette

What a haven. I'm with you on cramming stuff in, I know about light etc, but in order to grow everything we want to we just skimp on the gaps and select some compact varieties.

I also overpack my garden too. Sometimes intentionally and sometimes the plants just grow bigger than my research indicates.

What a lovely garden! Good luck on the melons, those always tend take a long time!
