I’m so excited that my sugar snap peas have sprouted up! I am amazed every time a seed begins to grow– even though this has caused a few eye-rolls and some mocking over the years from my brothers (“I come from a magical land where apples grow right on the trees,” etc…) I feel like it’s one of those fascinating miracles of life on earth that is too easy to take for granted. Seeing these little plants come up makes me wonder at nature and frankly gives me a sense of satisfaction for the (few moments of) time I have spent caring for them. So there it is… Garden Update #1. Go find a plant to love!
