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.

Yes I love my seedlings too. I was thinking of offering a prize for identifying all the seedlings. I have free codes for any of my calendar apps for anyone who knows what they all are.

Except the celeriac. That's too easy.

I'll have a go at it:
1) Clearly something in the broccoli family. Based on the ruffled edging, I'd guess kale?
2) Celeriac, but this one's kind of cheating :) And no, I wouldn't have recognized it without the tags as it's not something I've ever grown.
3) Not really zoomed in enough to tell. The tags make it clear that you've got a row of herbs. Behind that you've got maybe lettuce, or escarole? And there's a cell that is either nasturtiums or hollyhock.
4) Marigolds. Based on the deep red stems, I would guess a french dwarf variety.
5) Basil
6) Sweet potatoes
7) Another broccoli family something. The red stems are pretty, but they're throwing me for a loop. Maybe some sort of red cabbage? Hard to say without the secondary leaves yet.
8) Again, this one's hard without the secondary leaves. If it's edible, my guess is parsley (and this is my primary guess). Otherwise I would think it must be some sort of flower.

How'd I do?
