The lead pea plant stands up to make an announcement.
“Today’s garden report shows that, despite the extreme heat and rainless weather, the peas have sprouted and are happily producing new leaves each day, some are even sprouting little tiny tendrils to help them stand when they are tall and mature and covered with pea pods.”
Really, doesn’t this pea plant look as if he is standing with a book open in his hands and he’s reading from it? Don’t know why he’s so much taller than all the others in his row, or in the entire pea bed, but I’m definitely going to keep an eye on him and save seeds if he continues as such an over-achieving pea!
I love each plant in my garden. Some mornings it’s hard to leave it and come inside.
