Oh, My Aching Back
The pea patch has been raked, picked of rocks, staked, and planted. My poor back. We won't even talk about my hamstrings. It's worth it in the winter, though, when it's -35 degrees outside and I'm adding garden peas to my soup.
Afterwards, we made a quick jaunt to the nursery and bought strawberries, sweet corn, catnip (last year's made it through the winter inside, but then got zapped by cold temps after I put the pot outside again in April), and chocolate mint (last year's was zapped during the winter).
Sweet corn. No doubt it will look more impressive in a few months!
