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.

a year of garden photos

May 4: The peas are a few inches high, cover crop of winter rye is tall in some beds, and winter beds have greens growing.

Beautiful garden...The idea with containers is pretty good and it also looks nice - tidy and well organized. This spring I am going to do a little makeover in my garden so I have to try this. I am also going to build or buy a small greenhouse so I can grow there more demanding plants. I see that you have a lot of veggetables - the same as me. Tomatoes, peppers, peas are my "must grow" every year. This year, however, I want to experiment a bit and grow a new pea from called "Blauwschokker" . Have you heard about it? Is is hard to grow it?
