This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Capucijner peas

peas in a bowl
My Capucijner soup pea crop amounted to 2 cups this year - twice what I got last year. Its drying now in a bowl in my kitchen. I stir them often and remove the few peas that get moldy. Peas and beans for drying are usually left on the vine until they're dry, but it was much too damp for that this spring. They're pretty much dry now after a week in the kitchen.

I thought I would have more soup peas this year. I saved an amount of seeds that I thought would produce 4-5 cups based on last years yield. But it wasn't a good year for peas this year.

Pisum sativum
