A couple of weeks ago I took some potting soil and some Peas (Oregon Trail) and I helped the kids in Jackson’s kindergarden class sow some Peas for the school garden. Each of them wrote their name on a tag (no mean feat for a 5 year old!) and popped some Peas into a nodule, then watered their newly-planted seed. They were all very excited and have asked me ‘if their Peas are growing yet’ several times.
The answer is yes! They are growing. Safely tucked up in my greenhouse they are putting on a spurt and will need to go into the ground soon.
