It is Harvest Monday and we picked lettuces, pak choi, shelling peas and sugar peas. Lettuces are in the bowl for tonight along with some boughten head lettuce and some sugar peas. There is much more lettuce in the garden but wanted to use up some of the head lettuce. Celery will be added later, and I need to search the garden to see if perhaps I could find a stray raddish!
The peas are shelled and ready for tonight. We may get just a few more but I think they are about done and will be pulled out soon and added to the compost pile. We sure have enjoyed eating them this year!
And these are the sugar peas waiting for me! I think there are a few more of them out there yet. I think the beets looked like they are ready to pull some of them. I am hoping to make some pickled beets this week.
My little wheelbarrow looks so cheery with the marigolds planted in it back by the grape vine.
We had planned to plant this clematis by the pergola but when we went to do it we discovered that we had a drain there we had forgotten about. So we located it back by the fence and bought a white trellis for it to climb. The trellis is hard to see in the picture, but it is starting to go up it. I have read that clematis like sun but their roots like to be kept cold so put the stone in front.
My Wonderful Gardener thought it would be pretty to take a pictue of the bright pink flowers in front of the white. They need to be closer in front of the white tho so will have to do some rearranging next year! The little yellow button flowers on the right are on the gray santolina bush.
