This is last year's pumpkin patch. I covered the area with cardboard, leaving only the tops of the pumpkin hills exposed. It does help keep the weeds down through the season, but after one winter there isn't much left of the cardboard, and the weeds are returning in full force. This section has not been plowed this year, and I will cover it again soon.
The Bigs skipped school yesterday. Apparently I worked them too hard on the weekend, and they weren't feeling well. At least that's what they told me at 6am. By noon they weren't behaving very sickly, so I put them back to work. If you want a day off around here, you have to go to school, lol. We got the peas in. It wasn't too labour intensive, just a few short post holes and a bit of hoeing. I had enough seed that I could have planted another row, but I only have two fences, and that is usually more than enough. If I get ambitious, I might plant the rest along the actual garden fence, or build another pea fence, but this is probably it.
