pea fail


The peas never quite took off...yanked 'em today, had a tiny lunch, then planted bloomsdale spinach in its' place.  Since the Earthbox folks were so kind to donate 4 units to me, I just bought 2 more and five organic replant kits.
http://www.earthbox.com/  Another good salad with dinner tonight.  Might not weigh very much but it sure feels good to eat it.  91,105,77, .37,B, .12    LATE UPDATE:  caught the edge of a thunderstorm between 10 & 11PM.

How was the goosefoot? I've heard it's kind of bland but grows like a weed and is chocked full of things that does a body good.

Nice about the peas being as most edible when young. I've been a 5 year pea failure until this yeas. Try planting them this winter, cooler weather and less sunshine should help. Yesterday harvested 12 lbs of peas first picking. Sugar snap about 10. Lbs now and still coming on.

The pea leaves look a little yellow-ish? Perhaps a lack in the soil? Normally wood ash added to the soil prior to planting beans and peas is beneficial.

peas in Texas are a winter crop...better luck in Jan.

We're going to start some herbs and stuff tomorrow so i need to go back and brush up on your plant posts. I am hoping my year or so studying horticulture and then my time working in a greenhouse will help. Not sure it will help with getting the girls to eat greens, but we'll see. :)
