Paul Finishes The Winter Garden And We Celebrate Mitch’s Birthday

Time to complete the winter garden with a nice layer of straw mulch!  We have lettuce, onions,Swiss chard, peas, broccoli, cabbage, strawberries, and other delights.  We are still pulling asparagus from this years crop!

The mulch is like magic in terms of keeping the ground moist and not allowing it to dry out

The shelling peas are climbers so Paul put up a net to give them support.  In a few weeks they ought to be climbing high and producing peas for the table!

The peas can climb all they want now and the asparagus in the background are still producing.

We took Mitch out to dinner at the Summit House in Fullerton which is close to Zack’s place.  We dropped by Zack’s place to see the results of the tree trimming activities.  What a difference!
