Okay- I don’t really have any llama beans. You can get Llama Beans at Wunsapana Farm in Altamont, NY – and at several local retail garden centers near there. I’m not making typos here. I don’t mean lima beans. No. Llama Beans are the nicely packaged waste product of Teri’s llamas and from what I hear, it’s like magic for your garden.
I don’t have llama beans but I do have sugar snap peas. Just the peas. Not the plants. The peas are resting peacefully under the dirt out there in the vegetable garden. Actually, maybe they’re not resting. I guess they are getting ready to burst forth and whatnot. I spent a quick hour adding peat moss and just plain old composted cow manure to one of my prepared garden beds on Saturday. And I had some very willing help.
I sat down on the ground to take that picture of Riley kneeling by the edge of the garden. And then I got distracted by the scenery.
. . .back to the peas. . .
Sugar snap peas are always the very first seeds to go into our garden and we plant them every year. If you’re wondering what we do with them and how we prepare them. . . I can’t help you. We generally stand in the garden and eat them. I don’t think we’ve ever brought any into the house! I can’t wait to see them poking their heads up out of the soil!
What have you planted so far? It’s time to get out there and get those seeds in the ground! And don’t forget the llama beans!
