What a surprise this warm weather has been! The poor flowers and trees started budding in January--what happens if we have a freeze later this month?

The Sweet Peas are blossoming--that usually doesn't happen until March. Just a few have showed their little heads. Can't wait for the profusion that is to come.

And, lo and behold, we now have sugar snap beans and broccoli! Yay! The snap beans are so good we just snap them off the vine and eat them right there in the garden.

And broccoli finally appeared almost four months after planting by seed. Too small yet to eat, but they are looking fine.


  1. wow I am so jealous. We love snap peas.

  2. I can't beleive that you already have blooms on your sweet peas! You must really be saying "sweet" things to them. Mine haven't started blooming yet.
