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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

fall planting

Fall planting season has started and it's not even summer! I haven't done any fall planting yet, but I'm noticing on my FALL calendar app that it's time to plant collard greens. I'd like to give this a try this year. I might even try seeding a couple fall cabbages, even though it's a couple weeks late.

What worries me, though, is that I haven't gotten my popcorn in yet. My calendar is telling me I only have a couple weeks left to do this! A good job for tomorrow. (Today I have to deal with those bees.)

I was just thinking about fall seed starting last night. I've still got spring kale in the garden, but I'm thinking about planting some for the fall.

Have you ever dealt with voles? They're eating my sugar snap, snow pea, and green bean roots/vines!

It does seem too early to think about fall planting! I finally gave in and planted cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower last week - virtually all have germinated. It makes my husband so mad that I'm planting now for the fall - he thinks I'm wishing away the summer! But, it has to be done now. Last year I waited until June 24 to plant broccoli and, while I got mid-sized heads, I think I could have had a better crop if I had the planted just a little earlier. Growth slows down so dramatically as the days get shorter that they really do need just that extra bit of time. DebS.
