It is truly amazing! I wish I had a bird cam so I could have caught the action as it was slowly happening! Wondering what I’m talking about?
Well, yesterday there was no rain. I planted all the strawberries that we purchased from Territorial Seeds on our way home from Medford. I had to work around some that were already there and I even had to separate a few babies from last years plants.
But that is not really what I’m so amazed about.
I was all finished up for the day and decided to pop a few sweet peas in the ground as well. I grabbed some more compost and bone meal, made the holes and popped them in and was finished in no time (I only planted 5 or 6 :).
Here is a really bad picture of one of them.
I’m sure by now you’re wondering if I’m ever going to get to the point- Alright then, are you sitting down? This is really, really big news!
An hour and a half or maybe two hours later, I went out to check on everything and close up the cold frame, and one of the sweet peas had wound around the wire fence- in that short amount of time! I’m sure this news won’t make the front page, and maybe people might think I’m a little nuts (I can hear you!), but I’m amazed at how fast it found the fence! How does it know which way to go? It didn’t just find it, but it wound around the fence 3 or 4 times!
I know, I’m easily entertained!
It is actually daytime in this shot- I messed with some settings to try to get a clearer picture. The other sweet peas didn’t have a chance to find the fence because I covered them with soda bottles, I just didn’t have enough bottles to cover them all. It was getting really windy as I was finishing up, and I wanted to protect the little ones for a few days.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed my insanity today...
