Peas Have Arrived

June 23, 2010
Jumble of Peas

A little out of control

We’ve had about 20 pods’ worth so far.  But as you can see from the picture, I didn’t really plan well and many of the vines are bent almost in half.  I should have had something much taller for them to climb on and more supportive.  I don’t know what I was thinking.

Still picking and eating quite a bit of lettuce, kale and herbs.  Munching on some broccoli here and there.  Potatoes are hilled/filled and all set for the season.  Looking forward to some garlic soon.  Tomatoes have all been potted and about half of the plants are in large containers – I decided to grow all of them this way and forego the beds.  Again, this is due to poor planning on my part.  Two full beds are occupied by crops (garlic, asparagus) that hog most of the growing season.

Maxwell’s, our favorite pick-your-own strawberry fields, opened for the season last week.  We went Friday and picked about 12 pounds of berries.  They are glorious.  And you won’t find a better car air freshener.
