Yesterday we discussed how inept I was at growing carrots. I was encouraged by hearing I wasn't the only one that carrots gods have deemed unable to grow substantial carrots, and it seems like their crunchy goodness may evade me yet again, for my latest attempt has sprouted and the rain we had a few weeks ago apparently floated all of the seeds together in one pile in the center of the bed. Oh well.
The peas, another veggie that has left me fruitless in the past, seem to be loving these cooler mornings. Yes, we still get up to the 90's during the day, but the cool nights in the 60's seem to keep these guys happy. Hopefully we'll get some good peas this year.
On a pea note, we all know the story of the "Princess and the Pea" where the prince's mother put a single pea under the middle of a stack of mattresses in order to make sure the Princess was a real princess. Well, yesterday, our little "princess" got her toddler bed transformed into a big-girl bed.
Yeah. That was our thought, too. We had no idea the big-girl bed would be so, well....BIG!!!
The bed's taller than she is.
I seriously doubt she noticed the whole blasted can of peas under that mattress.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
