Planting Peas

Everyone in our family has been down for the count with the flu, except for my WONDERFUL husband who has been taking care of us. Today Jenna and I were finally feeling a bit better, so we went out to plant peas.

Pea planting is a great fine-motor activity for little kids, because unlike lettuce or carrot seeds, peas are big enough to pinch in two fingers. Jenna used sticks to poke the holes, and smoosh them in.

Unfortunately, it didn’t occur to me until later to try sprouting some peas indoors so Jenna could watch the seeds burgeon. By that point, we were out of peas so we used beans instead!

    Even though it’s felt like summer here (we broke a bunch of records last week), it’s supposed to be in the 20s tonight so we’re holding off our planting for another month or so. Looks like fun and glad to hear you’re on the mend!
