The peas of wrath

Growing has been, so far, much easier this year. The weather through the winter and spring has been a lot warmer than last year; significantly, the constant gales that we had in our first winter and spring don't seem to be around. Consequently, the eight rows of peas that SWMBO planted just a few weeks ago are rapidly emerging, necessitating scurrying around for the supports they will soon need.

Though I am starting to wonder if we are in some geographical pocket of freak good weather. A long time ago, I lost count of the number of times the weather forecast would say "rain all of the next day". Only to start work the next morning by shutting the curtains, to avoid getting blinded by a bright sun in a cloudless sky. Plus, SWMBO has been out most days of late with a watering can, to avoid the peas drying out.

More pea news as it happens.
