We are headed to the cabin tomorrow for a 10 days, maybe two weeks. I harvested a good bunch of lettuce, snow peas, and broccoli to take with us for our time away from the garden. The shelling peas are finished so I picked the last of those and we'll have them for dinner. I pulled a small pile of carrots that were eaten raw by the girls! Since it is my birthday, Alex picked me a lovely bouquet of poppies!
I pulled the shelling pea plants and the girls helped put in a variety of bush beans -- a purple, yellow, and green blend and something called royal purple -- where the peas had been. I also put in two new small rows of carrots amid the tomato sprawl. When we get back I'll have to reseed the pole beans and squash as the germination rate was low and the birds also got to them.
