PEA: A closer look

Although I like to eat PEAS I'm pretty sure I only planted them this year because the word PEA goes well with the theme of my blog! We might as well enjoy growing them though. Here's a few pics.

Yellow PEA (bottom of the plants turn yellow).

Sugar Snap PEA.

This flower looks like a little PEA fairy.

I can't believe it. Watermelons don't like water. Or good soil. I put mine in thinking that they would grow like crazy in my soil but NOOOOOOOOOO! They hate it and probably hate me too.

What a healthy watermelon is supposed to look like......

What my "hater" plants look like......

Fine! DIE! See if I care!

Dinner for something!

My Arugula got eaten last night! Something ate the leaves off of 4 sprouts leaving me with only 4 left. I only had 8 plants come up from the 16 seeds I sowed. I planted more seeds a few days ago so hopefully more will come up. Hopfully they won't get eaten also!

What Arugula looked like....

I'm wetting them every day now.

It's May 8th and I've planted almost everything I've planned on planting.
Frost be damned!

Arugula coming up. I like the double leaf configuration.

Danvers and Purple Haze carrots

Pumpkin plants I bought.

The garden loves the warmer weather we've had recently.

I'll post more pics soon!
