Ready for peas
The pea brush is up; it needs a little filling in here or there, but it's basically ready. And the ground is roughed up and compost added. December was so dry that I was even able to work the soil enough to get a little weeding done. Liam loves to help with the pea brush, but will weed for only about 10 minutes. He pulled some carrots and then played a complicated pretend game involving trucks. If there is a better way to spend new years day, I don't know it.
We won't plant until February or early March. This year, I think we'll grow Avalanche, again; we have a small growing space, so productivity is important. It was slow to start last year but once it came on, it went great. I'm toying with the idea of growing it on the new-this-year wire front fence too. Is it possible to have too many peas? I don't think so.
Happy new year everyone!
