Garden 2010

The first crop of the season has been planted. Yesterday the sugar snap peas went into the ground. It was a bit of a sad day because this time last year, I was planting with my little Maxie by my side. She was the queen of the pea crop, and at harvest time, it was one pea pod for the bowl and one (or two) for her. It isn't the same this year, but I will always carry memories of her and the garden.

Your Maxi had a wonderful mommy. I know how deep that dark hole in your heart is. I have one too.
