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.

That setup with the grow lights looks pro-delux i like the way that photo is taken. I grow all my stuff in the front window with a fan by the time im ready to harden up my plants they are pretty much there, My wifes grandmother used to use pots and pants to start her tomatoe seeds i used to find that kinda funny seeing tomatoe plants growing in the turkey roaster.

Wow, what a great set up. If only I had enough room for one like this! Although I end up with more plants they I can use with my little set up so maybe I should be careful what I wish for.

These shelves are one of my favorite things in the winter and early spring months. Sometimes I lie on the rug and watch the little plants grow. I love it when the tomatoes start growing as they have the best smell.

Love the thought of a turkey roaster in the front window full of seedlings! I would sit and watch them grow too.

I love this setup! Did you make it or is this a kit?

Shelves and lights from Home Depot or True Value. Local and much cheaper than kits. You can click on the "Shelves" label below the post and read old posts to find details.
