If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Garden Abundance

Gavin and I picked sugar snap peas today. He's my precious 4 year old grandson, and he loves to help.  "I help you grandma".   And the thing is, he really is a big help...talking constantly the entire time, but a sweet help nevertheless.
I was able to freeze twelve quarts with enough left to have for supper, stir fried in olive oil with garlic and finished off with a little kosher salt. Oh my, were they good!

Woohoo! So THAT is what happens when you plant your peas when you're supposed to...mine are a couple of weeks behind, so hopefully my bowls will look like that soon. : )

What you described in this post is one of life's greatest pleasures.

I need to read previous posts on your garden.
I just have tomatoes and zinnias, but next year I will be planting more.

Enjoyed visiting,
