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.

I took a series of photos of one of my lettuce beds. It is planted with Endive Dubuisson and Butterhead Green Ermosa. The bed is full now and we are enjoying them in salads. I pick the biggest or most crowded ones first and let the others grow.
