The latest goodies brought in from the garden are the Sugar Snap Peas. I picked these this morning with my oldest son. My youngest son was taking his morning nap. The peas I picked ranged between 2-1/2 to 3"long and had really full pea pods. There are several other pea pods that will be ready for picking soon.
We have had a great season of rain and warm weather and our little garden isn't so little anymore. Our goal was to get the biggest yield possible from our small space. So far I have harvested radishes, romaine lettuce, and now sugar snap peas. It is hard to believe that it is only June 1st and the season is really just beginning. I have several green tomatoes on the vines and the squash plants are flowering.
John and I sampled some raw sugar snap peas tonight. They were delicious. I plan to steam them with some seasoning for our dinner tomorrow night.
The tomato plants are about 2' higher than my cages. I had to add some extra supports to keep them upright. I had no idea that these plants could get so big. I have already moved the marigolds to give the tomatoes more space; hopefully they won't outgrow my space.
I expect to be sharing harvest photos of squash, tomatoes, and sweet peppers soon.
