A Feast!

OK, so I'm exaggerating.  But totally worth it all the same.

Remember the pea?

We ate it.

I sent Eric out to pick it this past Sunday night, while I waited indoors (in my PJs) and got a plate.  For the lone peapod.

I opened the pod.

There were three peas inside, two smaller, one larger.  I ate the bigger one and let Eric have the small and medium ones.

As expected, it was delicious!

Even better?  There are several more flowers on our pea plants.  More peas are coming!

I love coming home to nifty things!

We come in through the back, since we park toward the back of the house.  Conveniently, delivery guys tend to leave our packages in the back on the deck, especially when they're big.  When I got home today, there was a big one waiting for me!

Of course, I always check the return address first.  It was for me!

I'd completely forgotten that I ordered dowels, cake boards, and a fleur de lis fondant cutter for my planned Mardi Gras topsy turvy cake, as well as green sprinkles for the accompanying cake pops, so this was a great surprise!

And then... a peapod!

Our first peapod!  This is very exciting.  I've never grown a single, solitary vegetable before.

I thought we also had some green beans too, for a second.

And then I realized they were really just new, closed leaves.  Like these, which are a little more open.

Still cool to see so much growth.  As for some more updates...

The dill looks like dill!

See how it's getting those hairy dill-looking bits?


And of course, the cukes, basil, chives, and onions are lookin' good.

It was so gorgeous, I just hung out with Meg on the deck for an hour or so.  I love a day like this!
