The Circle of Life: Sugar Snap Peas

Last week I picked one of my cucumbers and ate it!  It was firm, sweet, and delicious.  I have another one that’s growing and I think I’m going to wait until the middle of the week to pick it.  It’s amazing how quickly plants can grow.  It seems that my tomato plants have doubled in height, and there are tiny green tomatoes budding (finally)!

My sugar snap pea vines are withering and dying.  I asked Scott why they were dying off and he said that sugar snap peas peak and die.  So sad!  I was hoping to get some more snap peas from the vines before they died.  Maybe I’ll plant some more :)

My Dad planted some collard greens earlier in the season and the plants are starting to bud.  I can’t wait!  I’m going to have to hijack some of his collards and cook them myself, because I am the only one in my family that doesn’t eat pork.  Maybe I can convert some of my family members to greens that have been cooked with smoked turkey. 

Oh, and the above pic has nothing to do with my personal garden, but I love it.  I took the pic when I went to the Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon earlier this year..
