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.

easter eggs

easter eggs IMG_2059

My chickens did a great job and laid all colors of eggs. I don't need to dye them for the Easter basket! White, brown speckled, blue, and green. I boiled up a half dozen for deviled egg Easter appetizers. I'll put them on a platter with my garden arugula.

My sweet peas are about 1 inch tall now. I have 21 sprouts. I’m waiting on 8 unsprouted potted seeds. I threw out about 4 or 5 seeds before potting so I guess the packet had about 30 seeds.

I guess my next step is to pinch the seedlings at 3 inches. That will be a couple days yet. I had them put side, but brought them in yesterday since it’s so cold. 23F last night!!

I also have 17 6-packs of Oregon Giant snow peas popping up (for my garden) and 12 6-packs of Sugar Snap peas for my mom.
