The Garden

The garden is progressing nicely. We planted two additional rows of peas that are now up and we got a temporary fence put up for support. The last 2 weeks we have gotten lots of rain and it has become a challenge staying ahead of the little weeds sprouting. We just have to weed when the soil dries out enough to get in the garden in between storms. I don't want to put down mulch until the seeds all germinate and get a little bigger. So for now I just keep hoeing up the weeds by hand until the soil warms up enough to lay down mulch.

The cool weather crops are all doing well I even see a bloom or two on the potato plants now. 

The two rows of snap beans are up now. 

That Chinese Cabbage that I have never grown is growing like a bad weed. I love the stockiness of these plants. I can't wait to see what they taste like.
