Summer gardens

 I finally pulled my first beets. I planted four kinds this year along with fast-growing turnips. Yum!

 I also planted purple peas which grew to about 6 feet high.

We shucked em tonight. Not as sweet or dark green as regular peas but still pretty yummy.

And best of all? This year no construction! My little wood shed is up, tucked in beside the house and now that I don't have a barn in the backyard,
I actually have a backyard. And I just love it.

Your produce looks delicious! The purple peas are so pretty. I do miss having a vegetable garden.

Isn't it fun that veggies are now available in so many shapes and colours? I grow purple beans but I've never seen purple peas before.
