Ya’ll know those dwarf peas we’ve been bragging about for these last few weeks – the ones that were supposed to only grow 3 feet high but topped 9 feet high instead? The peas we joking referred to as our “Tower of Peasa!” Here’s a pic of Jordanne picking peas from a ladder!
Well, they are gone – bye, bye!
They were nearing the end of production and mildew was the cause of their demise but not before we harvested loads of peas off them and enjoyed eating meals with peas, peas and more peas.
Our ever curious goats, Blackberry and Fairlight, want to pitch in ripping out the peas; however, Blackberry seems more interested in sucking Farmer D’s clippers. Silly goat!
The dried pea vines make excellent “pea hay” — goat feed. Nothing goes to waste on the urban homestead.
The garden is turning over a new leaf, certain spring crops are moving on out and summer crops are moving in.
What’s growing and going in your garden?
On a weather note, we were blessed a good drenching yesterday; however, it’s very chilly this morning! Certainly unusually/unseasonably cold weather for April. Wonder where spring ran off too?
