Actually, I’ve got 120 feet of peas. So, that’s more like 1440 peas.

It was BEAUTIFUL this weekend. It was spring, no doubt about it. Days like today are the ones that cheer you up, and keep you motivated, after what seems like FOREVER worth of grey, dreary days. And we took advantage!

My wonderful husband spend his Saturday cleaning and organizing the garden, since winter snuck up on us, and we didn’t get a chance in the fall. Today, he cultivated two of our raised beds, and planted the aforementioned peas.

I’d like to say I was helpful. I tried to assist, but I look like this…


So, bending, and moving in general, is kind of out of the question.

I did clean the coop, as the girls happily pecked and scratched, and dust bathed. They’re happy to be alive now that the sun is again shining.



Our pups also got some exercise, and a special treat! (Note the big ol’ bones.)

But, alas, it’s all fun and games until someone get hurts….


This ferocious beast wanted his bone….meanie.


We got a chance to sneak over to Neighbor Mel’s to check on the new chickies. They’ve been moved from Chateau Cardboard Box, to an AWESOME mansion in her barn. They are cute, sassy, and happy. Mel’s taking wonderful care of our bird babies.


And to end a wonderful weekend, Rich grilled me some burgers.


What a man. ❤

Next weekend, we hope to get onions, potatoes and other cold crop seeds in the ground. We’ve got to squeeze it all in before the 21st!

Stay tuned!

We’ve got PEAS!

And I ate it immediately following this picture. 🙂 But don’t worry, I have a feeling there’s more to come.


These are the heirloom variety my Grandmother had growing in her garden for as long as I can remember. They’re small, and delicious! They aren’t quite ripe, but soon! (Fingers crossed the birds to get them first!)

This is the Honeoye variety I planted earlier this spring. They’re much larger (the size of a quarter). They should be ready in a week or so.

Who knew how beautiful a potato flower was?! just another indication things are going well!

The heirloom winter onions from my grandmother have gone to seed, and look a little crazy! In a few weeks, I’ll dig them all up, divide them, and make a larger patch for next year!

Quite a few of our greens have bolted. I had no idea some of the lettuce flowers were so beautiful.

The pie pumpkins seem to like their home. (Just for you mom!)

The beans I planted last weekend have sprouted, and look ready to climb!

And to top it off, we finished up the main portion of the seasons planting with cantaloupe and watermelon! I’ve never had much success with either, but this year I’m feeling lucky.

Check back soon, or better yet, swing by for a visit!

Happy Memorial Day!
