This amazes me

Post  ishootaction on 10/14/2011, 1:35 am

This amazed me this evening. It blows my mind that this little pea plant tied ITSELF to my net. WOW I guess I am a real newbie. But how cool is that? Ahh the simple things you gotta love them. Sorry for poor quality pic. I am using my phone.

What amazes you in your SFG?

Happy Gardening I love you

I was like a mom cooing over her baby taking her first steps when I saw my peas grabbing onto their new trellis for the first time. I was so stinkin' proud of them for reaching up and grabbing on! It really is neat, isn't it!

I have never seen it. I was stunned. I thought I had to tie them to the trelis. I could not have done a better job. Mother Nature is awesome.

Sadly, not many people actually take notice of such things. I have family that wouldn't think it was amazing if the pea plant sprouted carrying a machine gun and came up firing.

Good for you for appreciating this. You may indeed be quite a rare person. You'll fit right in here...lol.

@ BackyardBirdGardner Thank You. I used to be that guy. Now I see the world with a new pair of glasses. The coolest thing is that I am passing it on to my children. Love my SFG.

Happy Gardening I love you

I am so happy to see some one that can see the world in a new way, especially as an adult. I saw that with my cucumbers this summer. At first, it was amazing to me. Then, I had to keep moving them and I was rather sad to have to unwrap them and train them in a new way.

Then the plant went crazy and grew every where.
