Peas, Beans and Good Soil
We turn the corner to another spring! March 2015. I've planted some beans and peas in my raised beds. It gives me great pleasure to see them.
The peas in the planter pots have been going for a couple of months (benefits of living in California vs. Wisconsin) - and have been eating the peas. Taking a conference call in the back garden while munching on fresh peas certainly makes one thankful for workplace flexibility and sunshine.
Below is a photo of them poking their little heads out after about 8 days. I put the camera right into the box, and up close, so reminds me a bit of Jurassic park. Perhaps next photo i'll photo bomb with a toy dinosaur.
The soil is good soil. "Veggie Hero" "A favorite amongst vegetable gardeners this well amended sandy loam is designed specifically for vegetables. Can either be used to fill raised planters or blended with existing soil. This product utilizes chicken manure, grape compost and cocoa bean hulls to provide a long lasting nutrient source. Contains: Sandy Loam, Greenwaste Compost, Rice Hulls, Chicken Manure, Grape Compost, Fir Bark, Cocoa Bean Hulls"
Life is good.
