Black-Eyed Peas

Following yesterday's post about how all of the plants have stopped making vegetables due to the heat, I walked out and found a surprise. Our one surviving black-eyed pea bush--a plant hasn't produced a single thing since it was planted in March--has now decided to put on two pea pods. This is very cool, as I had honestly decided that black-eyed peas just weren't compatible with this climate. Now, if the the plant will just go into pea production overdrive, maybe there's a chance that I can add a few homegrown peas to our annual New Year's Day black-eyed pea and cabbage lunch.

How cool! I have a strawberry plant that hasn't produced since I bought it. Maybe it'll have fruit in fall... what a great surprise. Let's hope you get more peas.
