The peas have grown and are producing a lot more. Though I never see/eat them because the kids get to them first. The cabbage has finally started forming heads, much to my relief, and the swiss chard is getting big enough that I don't fear I'm going to kill it every time I pull a few leaves.

I'm doing much better at watering the garden this year, I suppose it helps that I'm not pregnant or with newborn. That said, I'm very disappointed at how small all the plants are still, but have to remind myself that the growing season here has just barely started, we are just 3 weeks into it. Here are some pictures of the front garden.Only two have blossoms so far, but it's a promising start. We have nut grass something fierce this year, which I am not happy about. Usually we have had just a touch of nut grass and mainly battle the bindweed, but this year I think the compost must have added to it because it is EVERYWHERE and oh so annoying. And I discovered someone has taken our hula-hoe and the regular hoe. GRRR!
