Peas on Earth - Goodwill To All Men

I could hardly believe my eyes when I wandered out onto the balcony this morning. My recent spate of gardening has not so far yielded any fruit (or veg), although there is a bit of parsley kicking around. The healthiest plants in the garden have been the peas: they flowered about a week ago, and this morning I noticed that the flowers have turned into pea pods! Just amazing. Lovely plump pods, possibly enough for an entire serving! Whatever: there is nothing to compare with fresh peas, and we haven't had any such thing during our sojourn in the Sandlands. We'll just wait a few days to see if we get any more, and then we'll harvest them. Yayy!

Hey those look nice.

Whatever you do, dont grow watermelons.

They turn out bitter.

Wish you good luck with your gardening journey in the sandlands!!

Excellent - the little pea plants learned how to climb and produce!

How are the spuds doing?

(As for the basil/cress - I believe that your dear readers do need a final picture for completion!)

NZM: the spuds have succumbed to the dreaded mealy bugs, the cress, well, I hate cress so it doesn't get enough water!

Seabee: see above
