Peas....and more peas

Would you believe last week it was as low as 12 degrees. Today it was 71 degrees with sunshine. So we planted snow peas today. We know that we can still have a frost, but we are hoping we don't have a deep freeze.

We planted then near the house where Dad plants the extra tomato plants. Even if we don't get any of the pea pods to harvest the plants will at least add nutrition to the ground for the tomatoes later on in the season.

Bill also blew the leaves again. We live in a woods of mostly oaks. They sometimes don't loose their leaves until the new buds start pushing them off the limbs. While outside Dad and I started to take apart a gliding swing we had on the deck. It is rotting and is dangerous. Neither one of us was strong enough to remove the bolts. They had been painted over too many times. We roughly figured that the swing is at least 30 years old, so I guess we can not complain about it rotting. I hope we get a new one this spring that has a canopy over it.

Well the cat wants to take a nap on my lap, but he will need to wait until I take care of the laundry. I think I can get another load finished before going to bed.
