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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

lettuce varieties

I wanted to record photos of the lettuce varieties I am growing this fall. They are a nice mix of colors. All except the Simpson did well with the summer heat. The Simpson bolted and I had to harvest it before the head was full. I think the Skyphos has grown the slowest, maybe because it was under the squash leaves when it was small. I think it may also be the prettiest.

Can't say any of these are my favorites, like Big Boston or Prizehead or Oaky Red Splash.

This year my garden down the drain with my 3 weeks of travel in no rain season and blight on tomatoes mildew on squash but even than nature gave me some good crab :]

I probably will be moving to Seattle this year so will not be doing any fall gardening as I was planning.

I love looking at your pictures and reading your stories about them. That mouse shore knows comfort..lol..

Have a great day gardeners :]
