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.

transplanting to my plot

This afternoon I transplanted a bunch of seedlings to my community garden plot. I planted out broccoli, cauliflower, onions, beets, carrots, parsnips, radicchio, and two varieties of bok choy. Yesterday I planted a full bed of potatoes and expanded my asparagus bed. I added several barrels of compost to my beds prior to planting. Everything is looking good. I did not have my camera with me today. But I am thinking that with this drizzly wet weather, the new transplants will look really good in a couple days for a photo.

You make transplanting sound so easy and breezy. I remember the first time I did it, didn’t turn out so well. Time to take another crack at it!
