After several weeks when the peas just didn’t seem to get much bigger, they’ve finally started to take off. They’re now starting to cling to the trellis, and to each other, so I’ve started to thin them a bit. The grass is also growing like crazy, both in the yard and in the garden. The leaves in this photo are mulch, but even a combination of mulch, hoeing and serious hand-pulling of weeds is barely keeping it under control. But so far, not as bad as last year! I haven’t had to mow the garden yet.
