The proprietress of Cindy's Ski Haus planned on entering her carefully tended peas in the classic Alaska State Fair in Palmer, Alaska. Today was the day that the mistress gardener would enter her first vegetable contest. As fate would have it, a member of the local moose herd visited the garden last night and found the garden fence no hinderence to plundering the garden patch.
But, the big ungulate left a few pea pods, and Cindy bravely selected her best remaining pea specimens and entered them in the fair. She entered carrots and tomatoes, too. We'll wait to see the Palmer fair judgment, but she's won our hearts forever.
