Won't you please come and join me on a stroll through my garden? It's a bit wet due to all the recent rains we've received, so please be sure you're wearing your water shoes. :)
We've got lots of tomatoes, garlic, tomatillos, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, peas, okra, and green beans planted.
The peas this year are easily 5-6 feet tall. I love the dainty flowers. It's fun to watch the pods swell with the tasty little peas inside. This year, we're growing Alaska peas, an early variety. In the fall, I'll plant Wando peas.
The green beans (pole beans) are filling in and the runners have reached the top of the cattle panel. We should start seeing blooms soon with bean pods to follow. These are Blue Lake Pole beans.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope your shoes didn't get too wet. Next time, we'll tour my flower beds and see what's blooming. For now, here's a little sneak peek.
