Okay, so Hubs was right

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.


  1. I guess that's one of the secrets of successful relationships: when you're able to admit you're wrong. It takes great courage to be humble.

  2. I hate it when they're right ;)
    I have a love hate relationship with gardening. I really want to be a gardener, but I am not very good at it, which makes me like it less....vicious cycle! Can't wait to hear how they do! Love your blog, I'm your newest from vB!
