pretty peas and garden update

Peas are so cool, don't ya think?
These are an heirloom variety that are supposed to have blue pods.  I can't wait to see them. 

Our knockout roses are going nuts! 
Everything is planted in the main garden: six types of tomatoes, 10 or so types of peppers, scallop squash, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, peas, beans (pole and bush types) spinach, garlic, parsley, sage and thyme.  
(I know.  I need rosemary.)  We also have a bed that I scattered a bunch of different flower seeds in.  And another with scarlet runner beans, red mailbag spinach, cilantro, zinnias and snapdragons.  And one in the 
front for Love Lies Bleeding Amaranth--google it.  it's awesome looking.--and sunflowers.   We had tons of cherry tomatoes that reseeded in the garden and have given a bunch away, but still have about a dozen.
