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.

watermelon!

watermelon IMG_7829

I rarely get a watermelon to grow to ripeness. I'm wondering if I picked this one too soon as its supposed to turn completely yellow. Well, there are several more on the vines. I'm waiting to cut this one open until I have my martini glass ready!

Variety: Golden Midget from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co.
