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.

Great work. I have broccoli, kale, lettuce, jalapenos, banana peppers and onion seedlings! Also, trying some flowers, too. Looking forward to seeing your gardens come together! This will be my first one ever.

Yeah - a FIRST garden ever! That is exiting.

I started with purchased seedlings and it took may years to get my courage to try growing my own seed.

GOOD LUCK. Every year we learn more.

The seedlings look great! I built a small grow-light system for the first time this year and have started tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. Starting from seeds is very rewarding.

This is the first year we're starting seeds under lights (second year gardening), and I can't get over how happy they look under the fluorescents. It's a good feeling, seeing seedlings come up after this winter!
