Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Peas & Kale in the ground

Today it was a balmy 45 degrees outdoors, but in my little protected vegetable garden it felt closer to 50 degrees. I took advantage of the lovely weather to put in a row of Green Arrow shell peas, which is a variety I have not grown before, so I will have to wait and see how they do. A row of Lacinato kale was also planted alongside the peas.

Got down on my hands and knees to pull more weeds from the gravel walkways surrounding the raised beds. Thankfully the weeds come up without any effort, so I am pleased I am almost done with the weeding, that is for now anyway.

Lovely weed free walkways around the beds.

I am getting that 'Spring tingle' and am ready to get started on the garden, but know it is early yet, as the official day for start of Spring is well over a month away, so I must curb my exuberance.

It's always a great feeling when you are ready and anxious to get gardening! Let us know how they turn out.

Weeds are very aggressive here in South Florida. On my pathways and stone paver areas I pour boiling water on the weeds. It kills them down to the root and doesn't hurt the environment.

By the way love that raised bed.
Can't wait till I get that gardening push...warmer weather would help.
PS I'm not crazy about memes...I just say thank you without all the linking.
