new flowers and more peas

Alexis picked up a flat of marigolds for the garden (thanks, Alexis!), so yesterday afternoon, Alexis, Nathan, and I planted about 50 marigolds along the sidewalk.  These will form sort of a colorful border row that alerts pedestrians to watch their step.  And the added color will be lovely.

We also picked a good handful of snow peas.  Very sweet.  We gave some away to a few residents of 99 Kent Street, too.  They really like the rain, and it looks like we might get a thunderstorm tonight, which is great.  By the end of the week, we should have a lot more snow peas.  So if you're walking by, be sure to pick a few.  They're so crisp and tender we ate everything we picked before getting more than a hundred yards from the garden.
