Blooming Peas

The only bad thing about blooming peas, is that sooner or later you have to pick them... Which is a miserable job.

I hope you can see the white blooms. I planted a double row which maximizes space and output. The only problem is that sometimes mother rabbits will make a burrow between the rows. Three years ago when my peas were spent I mowed down a double row and killed a couple rabbits. I took no joy in that... Because it wasn't good for my mower.

I never really liked peas much (still don't, actually) until I had my garden in Spokane and my husband asked me to grow peas. He taught me the joy of eating them right out of the pod right after we picked them.

Oh my goodness!!! They're sweet (who knew?) and fabulous! Nothing at all like the little green cardboard balls that come labeled as "green peas" in the freezer section of the grocery store. Now I'm jealous again of how much better your life is than mine.

Your life probably does suck compared to mine. But surely you have many reasons to keep on living, although I really can't can't think of any at this time. You never know when you might find a reason to continue taking up space.

You just sound like you need one.



You are further away from me so you get a bigger hug! (smile)
