Last weekend, we got 1/2" of rain.

I worked up and amended a long-disused garden area in the front yard, reshaping it so it is wider, and has clay soil berms to hold in the water.

Last Sunday, I seeded the following in that space:
-Capuciner Peas from saved seed (this is a shelling pea with purple flowers)
-Wando Peas, Ferry-Morse, packed for 2009, as well as some more recent Wando Pea seeds
-Super Snappy Pea, Burpee 2011
-Snowbird snow peas, Burpee 2011
-Early Frosty Pea, from new seeds
-Kohlrabi, Early White Vienna from new seeds

The compost pile under Dave's window is growing with volunteer brassicas, lettuce and Florence fennel, though some of it did get dug up by raccoons this week.
