growing sugar snap peas

Top-down, left to right:

1. Peas! They’re about eye-level now (cheating because the soil’s about knee height)((also I’m 5'2")) and should be developing flowers soon!

2. I planted these a couple weeks ago, golden beets along the edges (husbo loves beets, apparently) and rainbow carrots down the centre. The germination rate is good, helped by a burst of warm weather. Beets come up thickly because the seeds are actually clusters, and carrot seeds are too tiny to space out evenly. I’ll have to thin these out in a week or so.

3. Herbs! I still haven’t planted a basil like I intended, and now I think I may just abstain and let the thyme and sage have the extra space.

4. Nasturtiums (left) and poppies (right) are starting to show tiny buds tucked among the masses of leaves

5 & 6. Strawberry and blackberry flowers, respectively. I can’t wait for delicious berries!
