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. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

my 2012 planting calendar

Microsoft PowerPoint - Presentation1

I've been thinking its nearly time to start my onion seeds. So today I made my 2012 planting calendar using an on line program I wrote several years ago. (Here's the link. Its on my side bar too.)

The onions need to be in by Valentine's Day! I will start getting my trays ready.

Hi Kathy-- i'm getting my plan of attack ready too. I plan on using your calculator this year. Either I'm missing it, or your calendar doesn't have a note for when to sow the onion seedlings outside. I've read "as soon as the soil can be worked". Where would that fall on your calendar? With the cool weather lettuce and broccoli? Thanks for the calendar and the wonderful blog!

Very cool -- I meticulously planned when to do things in my garden too. And at the risk of my husband calling me a 'super nerd' -- I've written some computer code to help me keep track of things, too!

Great job staying organized!

Onions - that's the very first thing you plant - first date first crop.

Go Super Nerds! (I can't really write code - this was an anomaly...)

Kathy,

Thanks for sharing this cool tool. I don't have much room for starting seeds indoors, but this will be useful for starting them outdoors and transplant dates for veggie packs I buy.

(I can tell I'm a little late on some things!)
