    Ah, missed the boat perhaps, regarding the food?

    Wikihow says:
    Growing sugar snap peas is easy and requires minimal care. Sugar snap peas are a cool-weather crop that should be planted two to four weeks before the last frost in the spring, or six to eight weeks before the first frost occurs in the fall.

    My sweetness is more towards chestnuts:

    Oxford Street
    the sweet chestnut vendor’s
    blackened fingers

    I hope that it's only sugar peas that lose their sweetness in July, or are you thinking of a new person in your life? ;-)

    warmest regards,

    Hmmm I thought this might have been hinting at a summer fling! I like it :)
