Eaves Sprouting


The rain this year has been overwhelming. We are way above average for June and when you combine that with the freezing Spring well, gardening has been slow. I am happy that I finally decided to try growing a few things in the extra eaves that were taken off the garage. I tried mostly peas and spinach.


They look to be growing just fine even though their soil is a bit wet. I took this picture a few days ago and I was just outside and they are already double in height. Yesterday one of the goats was up on the deck and nibbled at a few. I am excited to see the peas wind themselves around the poles as they grow.

    Our peas were very, very late because of the cold spring, too… here in Northeast Kansas. However, when they started growing, they took off, and we had peas in June for the first time!

    Huh. Neat idea. We have things sprouting in our eaves occasionally, too, but it’s normally dandelions when we are late on getting the gutters cleaned out… (blush)
