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.

seedlings onions IMG_0590seedlings cabbage IMG_0588 More sowing. I'm not spending all my time out snow shoveling my garden beds. Today I planted:

Endive, Tres Fine
Escarole, Galia
Kale, Winterbor

My onion, broccoli and cabbage seedlings are up and seem happy. I'm still waiting on celeriac and eggplant sprouts. They are slow...

The planting calendar I'm using this year is: skippy's calendar app. A friend of mine coded this and it's written to be simple and only give the information I need for planting. No ads on it. No flashy pictures. If you try it, let me know how it works for you. We're going to get the android version out soon!
