How does one celebrate the hottest day of the year? Why by taking out the mass of dead peas, of course. Then weeding and raking the pea plot, and hauling three loads of compost several blocks in the blistering heat (thanks to Haverford township for the compost, by the way). The rock garden and the pea plot look great now though. I am going to put in some radishes (just because we saved the seed), some lettuce, and some beans (also saved seed). Here's what the plot looked like, including all the biomass I hauled out.
