Spring Update

It looks like my first set of peas have been chewed (leaves and stems) and aren't doing too well. So, I have planted some Dakota shelling pea starts. I tried not to mess with the roots too much, and hope to produce a better yield. Also, I planted cippolini onions that I purchased at Christianson's Nursery in the Skagit Valley last week.

Spring Color

The tulips have bloomed. Amazingly, none of them have been eaten by rodents. Also, I have shored up/corrected the bent board on the side of my plot. It involved digging out all the surrounding dirt and wedging pavers between the plots, but it looks much better than before (see comparison pic).
