Lacey’s Garden – Picking Peas, Drying Out And A Great Book

Anna helped pick some peas, lettuce and herbs the other day.  She thinks it is so cool that she has her own pea plants.  I have to keep the girls from picking the peas too early.  They would have the plants scalped every time they walk out the door.

It was sunny and hot one day this week.  It has rained and been cloudy all the rest of the days.  The garden is hanging in there.  Everything is looking okay.  Hope it dries out soon. 

I have been reading a great book:  Four Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman.  I would recommend it to anyone interested in vegetable gardening.  Yall take care now!

Lacey’s Garden – Peas, Spinach and Snow

March 26, 2009

Hello.  Here are pictures of the peas and spinach coming up.  They are really looking good.  My carrots have finally started poking their little heads up, and the lettuce and mustard are up as well.  I am waiting, waiting, to plant anything else since the weathermen are calling for snow this weekend.  I am grateful to God for sending much needed rain this week and no bad weather.  Hopefully we will continue to get regular spring rain showers with out any tornadoes here in Tornado Alley.  Happy gardening and enjoy the spring rain where ever you are!
