When I was still living at home, dad used to take the family out for dinner. One of the dishes that was very tasty, but rarely ordered was pea shoots stir-fried with garlic.
With that in mind, I ordered some from my favorite online seed shop (http://www.kingsseeds.co.nz/). They had this variety called Fiji Feathers (Product Code 5525) that I thought I’d try.
So, the peas arrived about a month ago, and I sowed some in 6 small-ish containers and a container each of mustard and cress. Within 2 weeks, I had mustard and cress tall enough to snip with scissors.
When we got the heat pump installed, the installer made the heat pump box into a “house” for my daughter. It’s a very simple house with one window and a door. She has never tired of playing in it.
A while back, Mr K decided it was time we decorated the “house”, so he proceeded to cover it with crayon art – with the little one lending a hand.
Today, we made a new sign for the door – corrugated cardboard flower shapes with button centers stuck onto a piece of black paper.
As we were finishing this, I thought we should make a window box too (I had a cardboard flower leftover).
