Despite our busy busy schedules recently, we are still doing projects. I just need to post about them!

Today: Peas! I soaked them overnight and sprouted them by putting them in-between two layers of moist paper towels. And voila! SPROUTS! Bob planted them a few days ago. Results? 100% sprouts! Yup, 72 pea seedlings now live on our dining room table.

Soon, they'll go out front where we' hope we can convince them to grow over our rock walls (rather than up a trellis). We'll see how that goes.

Yes, that's a lot of peas... but they are early and so easy to do that it's worth it. I used only half of the $3.10 package and I had enough to give away (easily) this many sprouted beans to my neighbors too (I gave her the leftovers from the plate sprouting). So $0.75 for this many pea plants? Yes, might as well grow 72.


  1. Happy, cheerful peas! They look great!

  2. BTW, love the idea of having them climb up the rock walls. What a clever way to use them!
