I'm Giving Peas a Chance

I spent this morning tilling and improving the soil in a portion of our garden box. It was the spot where the tomatoes and the corn used to be. I haven't reworked any of the other areas yet because we still have a steady stream of watermelons, birdhouse gourds and pumpkins growing back there. Anyway, today I put nutrients back into the soil (hopefully as much as the tomatoes removed) and planted mixed lettuce seeds and either snow peas or sugar snap peas. A friend brought the pea seedlings over and I forgot to get the specifics at the time. I hope they grow.

UPDATE: They're snow peas. And I also planted garlic.

I'm sure they'll grow - you two both seem to have "green thumbs~"
