Glorious Garden Glut
This is the time when the garden is a little overwhelming. The first shell peas went in the freezer this morning. The second and third pea planting, while planted weeks apart, are coming on fast. There will be snow peas with shrimp and green salad for lunch. The garlic needs to be harvested early. The abundance of rain has had an impact on it. New flowers are blooming every day. The weeds are always waiting. Lavender is ready to be cut...
The gloriosa daisies look so cheery. It helps to make up for the lack of sunshine. There has been no rain so far today, but it's cloudy and looks ominous. So it's make hay while the rain holds off, since sunshine is too elusive this year to rely on.
