Sunday harvest

Now, I know there are those who do Monday harvests, Friday harvests, and weekly harvests, but does anyone else do Sunday? Actually we've had peas for at least a couple of weeks now, but they always ended up in our mouths instead of on a plate. I love fresh peas 💚💚💚.

Today's high: 26°C / 79°F

2018 garden improvements

New wire trellis addition and hail protection

Solid wiring for climbers like beans, peas, or even cucumbers however I see fit. Much more practical than staking bamboo poles each spring and having to pull them out at the end of the growing season. The hail protection takes a load off my mind as well since I don't ever have to worry about hail damage anymore!

Renovation on lower left terraced area

From old to new. An extra foot off space along the wide end to plant more things. I'm going through a bunch of seeds slightly past their expiration date (beets, radishes, carrots) but if they don't germinate it won't matter. I'll be starting broccoli and cabbage seedlings next month for late summer planting.
