Above – peas! At last! Below…something took a bite of my apple. My one and only apple…time to invest in some netting. I had a similar situation with the pumpkin last year.

The garden spends a good amount of time shaded by fir trees so it is a little slow to launch but things are picking up momentum and I’m looking forward to some garden meals soon.
