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.

It never ceases to amaze me when those little guys pop their heads up. I hope you find the fishing gnome!

I like how it looks like you have a lot of organic material mixed into your garden beds.

I use lots of organic materials as well, and might need to even include some course sand for some of my more clay based garden beds.

They look strong. I'm wondering, are these the peas you planted on St. Patrick's Day? (I'm a fairly new vegetable gardener and am wondering if it takes the peas that long to germinate?)

Your pea sprouts look strong and healthy. Last year was my first year planting vegetables in containers and it was a success! Peas are my 7 year old son's favorite veggie. His recommendation, "Pick the peas early in the morning. They taste sweeter." :-)

Hi. Thank you for all the information on your blog. We are starting a brand new vegetable garden; our three dogs are very interested and loved the compost we have worked into the beds. Regards.

!!! woo-hoo!! =) Which means, of course, I REALLY need to plant mine. And stop freaking about the pH (which is as yet unmeasured 'cause I've not yet bought the kit) and just cram some soaked peas into the dark soil. =)

Thanks again, for the prod. =)

My peas have unfurled their leaves- glorious green sails catching the sun.
Had my first three asparagus spears on top of homemade pizza last night-Yum!
If I get my magnifying glass out I can also spot lettuce seedlings and tiny tiny red beets this morning.
We've been lucky to have such a warm spring, I'm three weeks ahead of my usual schedule....lets hope my luck holds out with no frost in the next two weeks!

Funny, clear across the country and my peas are at exactly the same point. Yeah for Mother Nature!

This one's really a sight to behold. What a delight to see these plants push their way out of the ground. They look so fragile and vulnerable. This isn't something you see everyday. Thanks for a very lovely post ♥
