Postage Stamp Potager- Phase 1

As promised, here is the picture of the pea supports. They are in a "T" configuration. Tall peas are planted in wide rows beneath the supports. As the peas grow string will be strung horizontally to keep the vines from sprawling. It looks a bit crude now, but as the vines grow it should look much better

Below, I had a few curious observers today when I went out to plant more seeds. A trio of purple finches.

.Below, a clump of 'Ice Follies' daffodils.

. Section 2 of the PSP was planted today, a checker board pattern of 'Tyee' spinach and 'Ice Bred' arrugula.

The weather was much cooler today, in the low 50's. Rain is forecast on and off for the rest of the week, with cool temps. Perfect weather for germinating the cool weather crops.

Note- Pay no attention to date on the pics, could not find the manual so I could reset the date and time after yesterday's battery drain.

  1. The pea trellis looks great. I love using bamboo in the garden. I've never seen purple finches here. They are quite beautiful.

    I can't tell you how many times I have had the wrong date on my pictures. Hopefully you will figure out how to change it.
