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.
