Also pick some peas today. It was hot outside today.

Are those the peas you eat shell and all like for stir fry or do you only eat the seed(pea)? Just curious, either way nice looking stuff.

They are Oregon Sugar Pod Peas and are pretty good to eat right off the vine not shelled. My wife boiled a pot not shelled and they are good tasting IMO. The lady at Mid-Mountain Feed and Seed, were I get my seed, recommended them to me and said that is what she would buy, out of four different types they had for-sale.

Those are the best. I can only grow those during the winter/early spring and I often forget to plant them because of the timing but they are one of my favorites.

The corn looks good too. Good looking work crew also. Almost looks like they have an assembly line going, hard workers.

Almost look like storebought don’t they.... :oops: :lol:
I’m loosing the drive to garden. Too cold then to hot, to wet then pulling water hoses cause it’s to dry. Not to mention the back breaking labor to pick it and process.

Garden seasons winding down gives us enough time to prep and get trailers and move down there as soon as the veggies are done
