Planted and growing already!

sweet-pea

Sweet peas, sugar snap peas and regular peas, plus spinach, lettuce and a few carrots and beets, all planted out in the garden this past weekend, 4 days ago now. Amazingly, sweet peas are already nudging out of the ground. So exciting! Last year I planted these along a small section of our fence and was wowed by their beauty, and also by their ability to hang on long into fall despite a couple of frosts. This year I’ve planted them along the whole stretch of fence. They’re perfect cut flowers to bring inside the house, wonderful and fragrant to walk by and the perfect match for our lattice-style fence.

Hopefully our seasonal April snowfall (yes, woke up this morning to white instead of green!) won’t deter the sweet peas or the rest of the plants too much. I spent part of Sunday shovelling snow off the front garden and now doubly glad I did – it’s north-facing, so still a ways before anything we planted last season has a chance to thaw out.
