Pea Row

Peas were not a complete fail, we have a few meals but don’t expect to freeze any.  The vines failed to grow and now that they are growing it is time for the heat.  I blame the bunny, who chewed them early on.

1 Row of snow peas surronded by 2 rows of green peas.

Spring Graden is planted

All the spring flats are in the ground.  Four flats of cabbage, two of lettuce and one spinach.  I also planted lettuce and spinach in the ground and finished the two rows with chinese cabbages. There are three rows of peas and 4 rows of onions and leeks.  Starting in the greenhouse now are the tomatoes and chili peppers.
