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.

tomato planting time!

What a great day! Perfect planting weather.

At my community garden today we distributed tomato seedlings that we raised at local greenhouse. Four varieties of late blight resistant tomatoes. About 350 plants distributed to 55 gardeners. Legend, Moutain Merit, Defiant and Jasper. Nice big seedlings.

It was a good day to be a gardener! Or a tomato seedling....

Hi, i'm trying out a few 'somewhat blight resistant' tomatoes also, this year; none of the ones you planted though. I hope it works out, because the past two tears I hardly had any harvest...
Are you familiar with the ones you name, or are they new to you too?

Wow, what a great system! I'm hardening tomatoes off this week and planting this weekend. Got a couple of Waltham butternut squash I germinated inside, but most of the seeds didn't sprout. Maybe they'll like direct sowing better? Dud packet? Fey
