Amara picked the weeds..I mean the peas!

Amara was helping in the garden today. We were some weed pulling fools. About 10 minutes into our endeavor she asks " what the heck kind of weed is this?" TO my surprise, there was a pea at the end!! When I told her of her glorious discovery she thought she might be in trouble. No way!!! She cracked the case of the disappearing peas ( aka: mom did not label and/or remember where she planted them). I sure hope it's OK to replant them after she pulled them up..cuz that's exactly what I did.

Now I have a cluster of sugar snap peas possible growing way to close to each other. Oh well. Amara and I are having tons of fun in the dirt. I have to remind her that every weed does not not its own personal song nor does every worm we find need its own tune. Don't get me wrong; I am loving being in the garden with her. It's just that we were on limited time today ( we went to the zoo after Miles' nap), so I had to cut the Broadway Review down to 5 songs instead of 8!

I have included pictures of the mysterious lemon balm leaves ( or whatever it might be), pea pods and the onions. Enjoy!
