Garden Update: Peas!

Garden Update: Peas!

Well, one garden is carrying on around here. At least one part of it: we’ve been picking and eating fresh peas, and they are gooooood. (We do get to eat lots of veggies at meals — the amalas are good at growing stuff, and the kitchen staff works wonders with it…. but it is pretty rare to get to eat veggies that aren’t cooked.) So we be lovin’ these fresh little pods of green goodness balls.

The rest of my garden= different story. I really should have known better about my spot and what I planted there, but I also didn’t have a whole lot of choices. Even though the sun is intense when it does come, now that trees and bushes and all have filled in for the summer, my tomatoes and cukes and squashes just aren’t getting as much sun as they would love.

Everything that didn’t get munched by birds or bugs early on is still alive and trying, but looks like it’s stuck in a time warp, because the plants have been so tiny for so long. My unfamiliarity with the amount of rain (we are getting into monsoon) and the ground temp that never gets that warm enough (I think) because of the cool and wet weather, doesn’t help.

Here’s to experimenting. Thanks for your efforts, snap peas!
