I am going to make a confession. It is my husband who has the green thumb in this marriage, and not I. I have all the great ideas and do all the reading, but he is the natural talent.
About the second or third week of March, I planted carrots and peas. The seed instructions said the carrots take around 70 days to harvest. Two weeks ago, I checked them and there were no carrots. The green shoots were up and beautiful, but nothing under ground. I figured I set them out too late or didn't have the ground loose enough or any number of things. I was all ready to till it over and try again next year.
Hubs said, "Wait. Just give em time." "But it's already too hot, they probably won't produce, " I argued. "Wait", he said. So I waited.
Sure, they aren't big enough yet to actually pull up and enjoy, but this is a surprise. To me. Not Hubs.
Sometimes I am glad to admit when I am wrong.
