Pea pickin’

This is the driveway bed: salvia, clematis, peas, poppies in the back.  The ruby chard in this bed is getting chewed up by something, but the peas are perfect.  Good thing there is chard planted in other spots!  I love to hate the oriental poppies.  They certainly bloom with a gusto!

See the peas?! Yum!  The purple blooms are some type of salvia. It has been several years and I can’t remember its name.

There are two trellises but I just stuck some sticks in the soil for the peas.  I should have put more, they are starting to fall forward.  The oriental poppies that were on the right-hand side of this bed are done, but the ones on the left are just now blooming since it’s cooler there.

This bed is good for this—it was in the 90’s today yet this is cool on the east side of the house.  Clematis, peas, and salvia. The chewed up chard is not visible in this picture.  I suppose I should document that as well!

Just a handful for now–Mike’s going to grill them with other veggies!

He’s going to put some italian dressing on them when they’re grilling.

Here’s Mike and his crew putting the ribs on the grill.   Funny how it only ever takes one hotdog dropped on the ground and then you have a fan club for life…

When the meat’s half done he puts in the veggies.  That’s a tin of soaked cherry sticks in the lower left corner of the grill.
