especially the peas...
About a week after we planted our lovely garden, our neighbor said the man that did her termite treatment (we had just been treated as well) suggested we not eat anything from our garden for 2 years! It never even occurred to us, but yes, they do shoot chemicals into the ground around the perimeter of your house....so much for organic gardening.
To give this story a happy ending, I will say that our veggies are looking great and we planted some pumpkins and sunflowers to decorate (not eat) in the fall. Patrick had a great attitude about the whole thing (a lesson for this checkitoffthelist mom). He even wakes up early to water everything in the morning. So glad SOMEONE in this house has a green thumb.
