Snow peas

Don’t imagine that we’ve caught up with yard work—we haven’t, but I have to tell you. Our snow peas a) have never survived this long, b) have never bloomed at the same time as our tomato plants—and they’re still blooming (!), and c) some plants are as high as my nose!

I certainly recognized a number of bloggers on there (though, goodness, Lutheran blogging has changed over the past 10-20 years!!). I’m happily listed at 39, although maybe more of you Lutheran bloggers should apply to get on there. 🙂
