Sugar Snap Pea Garden Arch

Our peas always grow taller than the original frames that we created when we moved here years ago.  I considered creating new frames this year, but also wanted to keep the peas in reach of the small hands that like to pick them.  Our solution was adding an arch to connect the frames and I love how it looks.

The purple green beans are blooming, and for the spaces in between plants, I will be sowing parsnip seeds for our fall harvest.  Chioggia beets, Chinese Red Meat radishes, kale, swiss chard, and a few varieties of carrots are being sown in various places in our garden.
Have you started planting for your fall harvest?  What seeds are you sowing?

  1. I am going to try to get a fall crop of lettuce this year. I have it in a container and have moved it to a shady spot to try to get the most out of it for this time of year. I think it might be too bitter though, so I will probably wait a couple of weeks and plant more. It is so dry though! I will have to keep it good and soaked.
