It has been another rainy week in my neck of the woods. This winter the rain has been a little bit on the extreme side. We got four inches of rain in one day last week. My backyard and garden is pretty much a swamp. I need at least a week of no rain to dry things out, but unfortunately rain is in the forecast this week too.
I planted some more lettuce and spinach this week. My first try at direct sown spinach did not do well. I noticed the seed was from 2009, so this time I tried using some fresh seed. The snow peas and Alaska sweet peas are doing well and I put up another set of trellising. We had a really nice day on Saturday so I got to catch up on some weeding and other gardening chores.
Here is an above shot of the garden overall. I have 3 beds of peas going.
Here is one bed of Alaska peas with four single rows.
Here is another bed of Alaska peas with three double rows
Here is a bed full of weeds, this was an absolute nightmare to clear out.
I vow not to let it get this out of hand again.
Here is the bed after I cleared it
