Peas are Go!

The 3rd attempt at our Pea Tent for the
organised by
is finally on the go.
The first attempt was eaten by grubs
The second attempt was grown in pots on the veranda
and was demolished by the birds,
flicking them all around when they were about 5cm high

On Monday, there was no school, so we took the opportunity
to plant the 3rd lot of seedlings and hope for the best.

I can't believe how patient he has been with the set backs.
He just says - oh well, we will just plant some more seeds.

Good luck little ones!
Beware of the slugs,  the snails and

The Puppy Dogs Tails

  1. ROFL...ok that was too cute about the slugs, snails and puppy dog tails! Good luck on the tent, Kim

  2. what a good kid, gardens teach loads of things not just about food

  3. Ooooh. I have such anxiety about slugs eating away all my pea plants over night... I feel for you! Good for you replanting and replanting. Might as well right.

    I've heard you can sprinkle crushed up eggshells at the base of your plants and the slugs don't like to crawl on them...???

    Don't if it works, but if I see nibbles on mine, I'm giving it a try.

    Rachymommy -

  4. slugs and snails and puppy dog tails.....LOL! Glad things are looking up this time. What a sweet little guy to not be discouraged! :)

  5. Too cute! What patience he has to give it a third round. I don't think even I could do that without giving up!!

  6. What a cute post! What a patient boy to keep trying. Good for him!

  7. My fingers are crossed for you! My little pea plants this year were sabotaged by birds or possums (still trying to work out which!) My mother in law, after possums continued to attack her vegie patch, said that she discovered they stayed away whenever she put seaweed kelp fertiliser down, so when she left the bottle open on a continual basis next the vegie patch, they did not return. I am hoping this will work for the birds also...... I'm off to get some netting regardless!

  8. What a patient boy you have. I hope those peas are a winner this time:) Look at your cute little puppy, hope your all still having heaps of fun.:)
