Not an asparagus and not a pea.
June 24, 2011

I bought asparagus pea seeds on a whim last fall and given that Charlotte may or may not have accidentally fed the seed packet to our dogs, it is no wonder that my asparagus peas have been the slowest growing plant with the lowest rate of germination in my garden, except for maybe my wild strawberries which turn out to be the slowest growing plant with the lowest rate of germination in the known universe, OH MY GOODNESS.  The strawberries?  DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED, that is how pathetic those are turning out.  I planted seventy-five seeds and have exactly two plants to show for it - and after several months of existence there are STILL dust mites that put those suckers to shame.  Unbelievable.

But I digress.  ASPARAGUS PEAS.  I keep googling them and pouring through articles about how awesome and ‘frolicsome’ they are with envy and the waiting is killing me.  That is all.

    The strawberries in my strawberry pot are slow-going too. And every time a berry starts to get red, it is promptly eaten by a critter.

    I think I need a tiny net for my strawberry pot.

    My turn. What in the world is an asparagus pea?

    My strawberries are extremely slow-going too. I have friends who have already had strawberries…and I’m just barely getting buds….

    Leslie - I DON’T KNOW!  In the pictures, it sort of reminds me of okra, but I’ve never seen okra in person so I don’t know if that’s really what okra looks like.  I wish I knew, BUT MY PLANTS ARE TAKING FOREVER, sigh.

    Hmmmm, well let us know how they are when (if??) they finally take off. Good thing you have plenty of unending sunshine in southern Cali :)
