An old post I forgot to publish...

I'd written it back in early July before our trip to Vancouver; so, this will be your Monday treat...hahaha!

I've never liked snow peas (I know, what kind of Chinese person AM I??), but have always loved other kinds of peas, our favorite being the edible pod types because of less waste. Until such time we get a hog to raise, I don't think we'll ever grow shell peas. It pains us to throw the entire husk away. Look at these lovely little edible pod peas!
This was our first big basil harvest; we made 9.5 pints of pesto.  Good eats ahead!
Not all is hunky-dory in the garden though.  There's something wrong with our onions. They have mottling on the green parts, making them look like aloe plants, and aren't growing very well.
Anyone else have problems with their garden this year that they can't attribute to insect pests?
