Peas by the 4th of July
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.
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.
