Planting Peas

Ed planted the first bed of peas this afternoon. Two rows of Oregon Giants are planted on the east side of the chicken wire,and two rows of the Lincolns on the west. The stone markers are in place. This year I plan to leave the markers until next spring so I know where things were planted this year.

After the seeds are well watered,the wire sides will go on the bed. The wire helps to protect the new peas from our resident varmits.

We had a lot of fun in the garden today , weeding, pruning,and planting. Our first human garden visitors stopped by today too. A garden is even more fun if you can share it with friends.

What kind of varmints are you keeping out of the garden? Love the new photo on your header.
