Watch My Garden Grow: April 2014 Journal {Peas, Spinach, Lettuce, and Onions}

This post may contain affiliate links.
I thought it would be helpful for those of you who want to grow a garden for the first time to see what the process is. I will show you how things are growing along the way throughout the season.

Peas
I gave a basic run down in how to grow peas here. Take note, the seeds sprout and grow faster when the weather is slightly warmer. For example, if I plant my peas a month earlier than you do, I won't necessarily be eating peas a month earlier than you will. It might only be two weeks earlier. Something you might notice in these two photos below is that the first one shows one pea plant that has sprouted. The second photo has that same pea plant on the far right. Now you can notice that there are two plants that have sprouted in that same spot, and the second one is as big as the first. So the plants can catch up quickly.

Val, i am COMPLETELY MYSTIFIED! my 2 year old boy who LOVES independent playtime has been SCREAMING through it the past 2 days! He might be teething, but that never affected it before! Any ideas/thoughts?

Try giving him some pain killer about 20 minutes before. If he is happy then, you know it is the pain.

He might also want something different to do in there, so some different toys might do the trick. Or if you don't have music, add music playing in the background.

Thank you! I'll try that!
