It must be P week here. Pirates, Princesses, now Peas!
I'm so stinking happy I can't contain myself. Look what I've got....
Blooms everywhere. Not only are they blooming but these suckers? They are MASSIVE! (I've never grown anything but dwarf peas before) 4 fingers across! Wowsa, I'm impressed. The blooms are doubles and triples and if they don't set fast and start pumping out those precious pods soon I'm going to lose my mind.
These are planted too close so I'll get to try some while they are young... and hopefully I'll like what I try. Moreso hopefully some of the others in the house will like them too.
The lettuce and spinach has taken off to new heights this week. I'm happy, and the kids are thrilled. I'm looking forward to a good quiche for breakfast soon. :-)
The new expansion planter is filling in nicely finally. Seems strange - but I think it's all for naught. The weather is so warm the summer veggies would be fairing better now... Mother Nature sure is fickle.
Currently I'm debating if I can get a round of potatoes in before needing the 4X4 planter for the tomato seedlings. 80 days.... Hmmmm..... It leaves a lot to be desired for succession planting, but on the other hand the beans that were just there would be great for the tubers. Decision time. The first batch of slips are ready and the weather is absolutely perfect right now!
'Till next time!
