Our peas are forming nicely. I sampled one just the other day, and it was sweet and crisp. The tomatoes are also growing tall, and all six plants are a different variety. There is some cantaloupe or watermelon, from the original seeds we started that got mixed up and dumped out.
Emily requested some back yard beds, so this is what we came up with. The fence is to keep the chickens out until the plants are a little bigger. There is some sweet corn in here for Emily, as well as edible soybeans, spaghetti squash and a yellow zucchini. On the left are some barely alive plants procured from a neighbor at a vegetable swap (thanks Marsh). I think these are eggplant, watermelon, and okra. The rest of this bed will be planted a little later on.
I even added a little bed in the corner and planted the kids a random assortment of flowers to tend to. All in all it has been a lot of fun and a great learning experience.
