A small tribute to my sweet pea plants
I am posting this photo of the last of my sweet peas, picked this morning, before I cleared the raised bed where they have been growing this year. When I got back from Australia in July, I really didn't expect the plants to flower much beyond the beginning of August. They had not been picked while I was away, and they do like to be picked and picked, to keep the flowers coming. The old flower heads had produced masses of seed pods, so I cut as many off as I could, gave the plants some feed, and, bless their hearts, they have persevered until today. Hooray!
