Sunday afternoon I spent some time picking sugar snap peas in our garden. I picked enough to add to a salad or use in a stir fry! I cannot believe how well our garden is doing. This was my second picking of sugar snaps and there are several more almost ready! We have also eaten two heads of lettuce out of the garden.
After picking the peas, I decided to just see how my potatoes were doing. I reached under a plant and felt a hard round object - an actual potato!!!!! We have three types of potatoes and all three have produced potatoes to eat. We dug up some of the larger ones (and in the excitement, several tiny ones!) and carefully covered the roots back up so the plants can continue to produce potatoes for our dinner table.
Potatoes can be very hard to grow in this area and I was advised by several nurserymen to not even try! I love beating the odds!
We spent a little more time defeating potato bugs with a pan of soapy water and pulling weeds. We have baby squash, peppers, and blooms on the pumpkin plants! Soon I won't have to buy any produce at the store!
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
