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.

- My celeriac that I had given up on are all sprouting today. Yippee!
- Broccoli, radicchio and endive in small cells are drying out fast, looking very sad about this. I'll start up some more in case these have a problem and will check seedlings more often, i.e. daily. Once the broccoli recovers, I'll transplant to larger cells.
- I had way too many "Mixed Greens" come up in one pot. I thought this seed was old and dead. So I transplanted it to thin it out.
- Winterbor and Tuscan kale are not sprouting. Only the Red Russian. If I see a packet of either, I'll pick it up.

Some day I will be as organized as you (yes, I have organization envy). It's not happening today, though!
