The past couple of years I have grown Amish snap peas. While they have done okay, I did not think they were as prolific as the variety I grew many (20?!?) years ago. Then I recently read somewhere that peas are to be planted in bands, not rows. Doh! I KNEW that, but had forgotten it. No wonder the harvests seemed a bit sparse. Next time I will do bands. Assuming I remember.
Yesterday my SO came over to weed and found a dead rabbit outside the back fence. While examining it last night, I found a dead robin nearby as well. Remembering a CO2 cartridge I found in the garden a month or so ago, I put two and two together and came up with someone using my backyard habitat for target practice. Grrr! Of course, I have my suspicions but no proof, so I emailed all my adjacent neighbors, asking if they had noticed anyone in my yard. One responded that while she had not seen anyone in my yard, she had found a dead rabbit in their yard. The plot thickens.
Today the weather is not very summerlike - gray, breezy, cool - almost like fall. Hope my sweet potatoes don't get discouraged.
