Yay sweet snap peas!
The pea plants are very happy, and we got our first
serious load of snap peas today!
The rest of the garden is still in growing mode.
And I am still in weed killing mode:
The planted areas, I quickly weed with a stirrup hoe.
The grassy areas, we are slowly digging up with the fork:
the grass dies and then I add that to my stirrup hoe area.
And then I just stare with displeasure at this
cover crop area where the garlic USED to be.
*sighs* The garlic has died and
the cover crop is Berseem clover... I should
take a pic, it's starting to bloom over there!
Also a few Borage plants, making the bees
The borage plants are companions to all the "fruit"
vegetable plants. Those beautiful star-shaped flowers
attract bees like crazy. And bees are necessary if you
want tomatoes, cucumbers or zucchini!
As we were leaving the garden today...
singing a beautiful song!
