I can no longer reach the top of the peas. That's some vigorous growth!
Someone needs to tell my Super Sugar Snap Peas enough, already. I keep putting up taller and taller trellises and they keep outgrowing them. My 6-ft-tall husband drove 8 ft stakes into the raised beds, tied a string to top, and the peas are now 6″ taller than that string. It’s really getting to be ridiculous. I can’t reach the top peas to harvest them. Note to self. Don’t plant this variety of peas in a raised bed again.
Even 6-ft-tall Vic has to stand on something to reach the top of the peas.
Well, at least something grows in my garden. After crop failures of my cabbages, it’s nice to see such lush growth. It isn’t all vine. They’re making peas too.
One day's harvest included these lovely leeks, as well as makings for a stirfry and salad.
Here’s the harvest for this week.
1 Meyer lemon (6.5 oz.)
2 leeks (7 oz after trimming)
1 radish (1 oz.)
1 bell pepper (4.5 oz.)
lettuce (5 oz.)
herbs and nasturtium flowers (2 oz.)
kale (6 oz.)
snap peas (14 oz.)
Total harvest: 17 eggs and 2 lbs 14 oz. produce
