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.

my tomatoes are finally in

Finally!! I planted my peppers, eggplants, cukes, squashes, and tomatoes in my garden on Monday. It’s been a slow, cool spring here. I can’t eemember ever waiting til May 20(!) to pjant yomatoes. I planted the warm weather crops in my mom’s garden today. It was 60 with a light drizzle all day. The good news is that night time temperatures are staying warm - above 50. we‘re just waiting for a nice run of 70 and 80 Degree days. Most gardeners I talk to are waiting for June 1 to plant. (Entered on my cellphone with limited editing ability. Pkease excuse my type-o’s.)

It's good you got tomatoes and peppers in the ground which is usually a sign of spring finally warming up. We've had a cold spring as well and just planted tomatoes and peppers a few days ago.

It looks like it is going to be a very good year for our blackberry bushes

This is the latest I've ever put the tomatoes in, just this morning. It was going to be yesterday. I'd just gotten them in when I get a text "don't plant anything, I'm getting railroad ties" :-/ Out they came, and into a pot with dirt for overnight, too darned hot to put them in after getting the ties in yesterday. At least I didn't have the newspaper and cages on them yet. Used railroad ties would not have been my first choice, but ... It was not a battle I wanted to fight that day.
