the pea patch

Things are growing!!

Things are also being torn out of the ground by ants, birds, armadillos, raccoons, curious toddlers, idiot dogs and hell-bent squirrels.  The resistance is composed of a small army of ladybugs, lizards, frogs and yours truly.

Joseph and I go out to the garden every morning (dressed like a pair of stowaways in pajamas, nightgowns, sweatshirts, sun hats and robes) and look at what seeds have sprouted.  So far, peas and beans have been the most satisfying to watch because they grow so quickly.  We have one or two promising squash plants and the rest (tomatoes, peppers, carrots, greens, herbs, etc.) are chugging along.  This weekend watermelons, potatoes and a bunch of flowers get planted. 

I feel like mother nature incarnate.
