Default Sweet peas

Last year I planted sweet peas - apparently the pea-pod variety. I'd pass by and eat a handful. I don't think I ever picked any to bring in the house.

This year they plumped up faster than I could eat them. These were obviously the shelling type. When I brought them in, I realized I had never cooked fresh sweet peas. They were quite good - even hubby (who says vegetables are evil) said they were good.

It looks like I'll be planting another batch this week for a spring crop.

Wellllll, It is the first time I've grown them for shelling. I probably should have picked them a couple of weeks ago.

I'll plant a few more this weekend. And beets and turnips.

Think I'll have myself a nice cool fresh salad tonight after fighting the flue for the most of the week here. Eating again is good!

Wow! I've always thought of doing that indoors....but this might be the final push to get me to try it. That is great looking lettuce!

I tried sprouting some chia seed on a window sill. It did great until.... the cats jumped up on the counter and gave it a few haircuts too many when I was at work.
