there’s no happiness quite like a successful harvest. the snow and sugar-snap peas are at their peak, and they are quite yummy. peas have been the easiest and most successful crop we’ve grown. all I do is put them in the ground in February, rig the trellis system (electrical conduit held together with zip ties, with bird netting draped over), spread a little slug bait now and then, water a bit if it hasnt rained, and in the middle of May we get enough for a meal everyother day. so satisfying. here’s a snow pea blossum. before I planted them, I had no idea how beautiful they were.
the tomato plants are perking up, as well as a couple cukes that I had given up on. I think the cool spring was holding them back. and once again, the peppers look terrible. we need to get more tomatos (michelle is dreaming of tomato soup, and many must be sacrificed for it) and we’ll try our hand at squash again, although we anticipate the bugs to win again. hopefully they’ll at least be distracted from the cukes.
