Growing Things

It's the time of year when we plant things. I plant things inside.Larry planted peas. Mmmm, my favorite vegetable. They're the one thing we can plant around here early in the season. They don't mind a bit of cold, in fact they like it. Once the temperature climbs into the 80's for extended periods, the peas are finished for the year.
Mother Nature planted a lot of maple seeds. She must think we need even more maple trees. We find tiny baby maple trees growing everywhere. Truly - everywhere! They grow on the roof, in the gutters, in tiny cracks in the driveway, and of course in every available patch of soil.


Wishing you and yours the very best.

Peas are so much fun to grow and I really enjoy eating them straigt from the pod.
I wish we could have some maples pop up in our garden our soil is just sand and we are forever putting compost on it but we live in a very hot dry climate and the sand just eats it all up.
