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.

Great harvest! I did not grow peas this year. It was my off year for them, but I did double up on the tomatoes so I am pretty excited about that.

Love it! I'm missing peas. I'm hopeful I can get a small fall crop going.

How are everyone's tomatoes doing this year? Mine seem very slow, not getting tall and thick, but they started to have few blooms and a few fruits. I wonder what causes the problems. Too many cooler nights in June?

Hi! Well here in East London, UK, our tomatoes, courgettes, pumpkins and beans are slow. They have had to contend with all sorts of weather, wind ripping their leaves off, really hot days, cool nights and not much rain at all. Think it is going to be a poor harvest year, but there's a couple of months of hope left!
