Homegrown Sugar Peas
There’s something primal about growing your own food. I will admit that, historically, I’ve been a terrible gardner but my faith has been restored by my ability to keep three spider plants, a pony tail palm, and some anonymous succulant alive for over a year now. Baby steps!
Every year around this time, I start thinking that I should give gardening another shot. I have visions of planting bulbs around the front perimeter of the house (should have done that last fall, I think…shoot I don’t know anyting about gardening) and maybe an herb garden out back.
Right now, I’m at work munching on sugar snap peas and I thought ‘Hey, I can totally plant these!’ They are SO good and are the perfect snack. They keep your mouth busy with all the crunching but they’re good for you! And thanks the glory of Google, I found two really great articles about starting your own sugar pea plants. It doesn’t look too hard.
I don’t think that a girl can call herself a Cupcake Feminist until she eats something that she grew herself so I’m going to channel my inner Ed Hume and get to work!
