quick garden update

Because I know you are all on the edge of your seats waiting to hear how the garden is going, I'm going to grant your wish.

It's going rather well.
There are a few things I have learned for next year.
One of which being, do not plant so many tomatoes next to each other.

As you can see here, they have gone a bit wild.
They are even fighting with the Raspberry bushes.
They should both just really learn to stay of the paths and out of each others way.

The yellow beans that I saved from last year are coming along well.
I'm kind of surprised because I really didn't do anything special to keep them. I just put them in a jar out of the light.

Some of the Peppers are doing well. the little heirloom ones aren't though.
I'm going to transplant them to the spot where the Radishes where.
The yellow ones seen here aren't being shaded out by the zucchini, yet.

This is a Tomatillo. We got it from the East Side Co-Op plant sale. HT wanted to try them as that Bobby Flay guy is always using them.
They kind of look the the paper lantern plant.

And soon my friends, we will have more peas then we know what to do with. I'm going to have to learn how to can peas I think.
I love the way the vines look. So delicate yet so strong.

So that's all for the garden. If anyone wants any mustard greens, swiss char, or lettuces we've got tons to share.

Canned peas are icky! Blanch and freeze just like the Green Giant. Ho Ho Ho.
