|The grandchildren did not believe that we could |
grow peas on a napkin
|We allowed leaves to form. The kids called|
them Cows because I told them they
were cow peas.
|The kids watched them closely as they grew. |
They ran in the house asking how the sprouts
|September 10, 2014. We planted them out in |
|I explained that we were planting |
them later in the year than usual.
|They really did not care. They got |
to play on the dirt pile.
|September 9, 2014. We did not|
count on the Deer loving cow peas.
|Our cow peas were a tasty delight for the deer.|
|Deer do not seem to like zucchini. The cow peas|
that were close to the green squash were not
touched by deer.
|The experiment was a success. We did|
get a few cow peas. A mixture of
garlic and the hottest pepper
I could find discouraged
the Deer from making
our cow peas
The zucchini also grew on the napkin. Four zucchini plants produced a fine harvest.
For the humans, not the deer.
