The owl and the pussy cat went to sea,
in a beautiful pea-green boat.

My first harvest of peas for winter. These were grown from a dwarf bush variety of seedling purchased at our local hardware store. This is almost all of what I will likely be able to harvest from the plants. To be honest I was a tad disappointed by the small amount of peas the crop yielded. I had hoped for more from the sixteen plants.

Such a small harvest.

Perhaps it was due to the location of the plot.
Perhaps they did not get enough sunlight.
Perhaps it was caused by all the wet weather we have had of late.

The modest pile of used pea pods were fed to some very grateful chickens, and thus the cycle of production in my garden continues.

  1. My garden is not as productive as I would have hoped either, but that's still a lot of delicious looking peas! I think you should be very proud :)

  2. Awww thanks hon! Nice to hear from you again! How is life going for you above the boarder? Would love to hear about your veggie garden progress :-) xox
