Yes indeed, I planted the peanuts this weekend. What? Peanuts come from peanuts? I thought they'd be...seeds. I'm serious, I was so surprised. I am learning so much. I have to say that my neighbors are skeptical. My cute garden is at the side of the house where people passing stop to discuss my crops... often. It's fun. Seems that everybody has something to say about gardening or about me gardening. Some people share wisdom and some just like to mock. I had to extend the garden because I planted to many pumpkins and melons and gourds. I need a farm. I took down a part of the fence and dug up a section of grass. Sheesh! that was hard work. I figure if my pumpkins go wild I'll just toss the vines over the fence into my brother's yard. When is the state fair? I have so much to do!
I love those peanut babies. If this works I'm going to take a peanut to every person who questioned my endeavor. If I get a good crop (that's funny) maybe I'll whip up some peanut butter and make sandwiches and pass them out to the neighbors. Next year I might even want to dig up the rest of the yard to plant more. If I crash and burn...oh well!
Now what is in the picture below? My little tiny peas are growing. I'm about to cry just thinking about it. This is so exciting.
