The fruits (er, vegetables) of our labor
Nearly two months later and we’re getting some real production. Although the seeds we planted didn’t all come to fruition. In fact, only three of the pea plants are really amounting to much from the two rows we allotted. And the lettuce and spinach? The bunnies, adorable little critters with healthy appetites, nibbled them up before we even got a chance to admire them.
Since then we’ve added beans, carrots and pumpkin to the vegetable garden and planted sunflowers, zinnias and poppies in the flower bed next door. Fingers crossed that the sunflowers get to more than a foot high this year. The little critters cut them off pretty quickly last year. Each and every plant bit the dust.
