Peas by the 4th of July

early peas growing in the garden

A favorite saying around here I hear from the old farmers, I didn’t think we would make it this year. Well actually we didn’t make it we had our fist taste of peas on the 6th…

This is a new variety called Early Burpeena. I planted some 2 weeks early and some right on time when the leaves were the size of mouse ears. I don’t see that they are any earlier than the other varieties I tried this year, but are they tasty.


Daisy's Radish

This is a small raised bed built just for Daisy, in it she planted radish, lettuce and spinach. She has kept the weeds out and watered it every day. At 6 years old she sure is a good gardener isn’t she. She tells me she doesn’t like radishes but grew some to feed her rooster, Fire Cracker.

What a sweet girl, let’s hope Puppa doesn’t spy that radish! He will be the one eating it not the rooster.

How is your garden growing?

  1. I don’t have peas yet,but they are growing nicely. My onion didn’t take,nor my carrots. I will have to replant them for the fall I guess. Try to stay cool-this humidity and heat is for the birds! 🙂

  2. I hear you. This is the first year in the past few the peas are worth even looking at. I planted our first batch of carrots 3 times before they came up. Our fall batch was seeded last week and are up pretty thin, so I think I’ll try again.
