The garden has been enjoying the weather this week, although a bit more rain would be really nice!

Peas! The peas were loaded earlier this week. I love this ‘Feisty’ variety with all the tendrils and the silvery green foliage. Peas are fun to grow, even if they don’t yield a lot in a small space.

Fresh PeasFresh peas are the best, especially when they are a little on the small side and super sweet!

Red CurrantThe red currants are just beginning to ripen. We have a pretty pitiful yield this year due to the stress of transplanting and fairyly heavy pruning.

Chive BurrowSomething is trying to dig a hole or burrow under the chives. Not sure what, but I’m not sure the critter has selected the best spot for a home!

Snake in the FennelThe garden snake is hanging out in the Bronze Fennel this week. The fennel has been growing really well. When you walk by, it smells of that nice sweet, anise scent.

Sherwood LettuceThis is one of the heads of mini Sherwood Lettuce. It’s supposed to be a mini-heading variety. The heads weren’t very big, but it seemed like it was time to get the lettuce out of the way so the peppers could grow. We harvested 3.25 pounds of lettuce out of the Family of 4 Garden this week!

Have a great weekend!
