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.

sunning seedlings

sunning onion seedlings 018 Such a nice day, my seedlings were sunning outside. It was near 60*F on our sunny patio. Still a foot of snow, but melting fast. My onion seedlings are growing and the celeriac have sprouted. My 6 year old onion seeds still haven't come up. Last year they eventually sprouted, so I'm giving them more time.

Hi Kathy,

I have onion seedlings here around the same size. How big do you let them get before planting them out? I live in Australia, so snow isn't a problem! But I've never grown from seed before so I'm a bit stumped!

Love your blog, Kathy. I just stumbled across your page on "sunning seedlings." Reminds me that I need to get my seedlings in gear for spring planting. Hoping for an excellent year for my Brandywine tomatoes!

Saw your pictures from last year's garden. Very impressive! I have a large(ish) garden at my house...about 1,000 square feet. Keeps me busy from spring through fall.

I will definitely be following your blog in the upcoming months!

Also, I have a yellow lab named Cleo. She loves my garden as well :)

Best,

Matt
