The strawberries are done for the spring, but they look to be spreading, so hopefully next year we’ll have a better harvest. I need to mulch these (well, I still need to mulch almost everything) – I’ve been too busy with other projects and haven’t spent as much time outside this spring as I would have liked to.

Snap peas should be ready any day – they are flowering and the plants have nearly reached the tops of their trellises. In front of them are carrots and some hot peppers. I pulled out the spinach (finally!) and planted mung beans, black eyed peas, and a handful of fava beans in their place. It’s too late for fava beans, but they are a terrific cover crop (great for fixing nitrogen), and I’m curious to see how they grow. On the to-plant list for next year!
