Sometimes a project just comes together. We built the espalier for the raspberries and blackberries. Unfortunately, one of the plants is already rather significantly damaged due, it seems, to the trellis supports we originally used. The netting is still not up. This year's garden is a learning process for both of us; it has been 35 years since I worked a vegetable garden. Today, I harvested enough peas for us both to have a real serving at dinner. Although bitter when raw, not sweet as expected, once cooked with a bit of sugar in the water, they were quite nice.
