(storebought) dried blackeyed peas; I can't imagine having this type of success saving my own dried beans; it seems like it would be SO MANY plants! And a bag of dried blackeyed peas only cost like $1.50

    What is it about black eyed peas/beans and New Year in the U.S.? Lovely lemon. I have 2 teeny tiny Myer lemons forming on my small tree. It will be interesting to see if they come to fruition (pun fully intended ;) ). OH I love those succulents! I am a succulent fiend. I used to have an extensive and most wonderful collection of them and many gorgeous cacti until they started to disappear one by one. I thought I had grubs that were eating them till I realised that one of our ducks had been scarfing them down as obviously, succulents are the plant version of slugs! By the time I realised what was going on my collection had been severely whittled. I just found 2 manky celery heads going over to the dark side in the bottom of my fridge. I carried them (most gingerly) out to Sanctuary whereby I dug them each a hole and shoved them tail first in. Lets see what happens…mini bonsai succulents. How lovely :). You have some serious succulentage going on in your windows ma’am! I eat black eyed peas but not for New Years. My black eyed pea consumption is entirely related to my desire to scarf non animal protein. Most interested to find out why you guys in the U.S. eat them at New Years…

      I have no idea what the blackeyed peas deal is. I too eat them regularly in an avoidance of les animaux but just figured I would go with the trend of making them on new years haha. Manky celery heads eh? Hahah

        Sounds like a spicy bomb to me! I ate as many globe artichokes as I could press down into my biggest stock pot and a strange version of congee that I have been working on (because I am not a sweet breakfast person) but no beans or hopping John’s I am afraid. I love spices. They make plant material magic :)

    Love the pots of succulents – esp. the fuzzy, toothed kalanchoe.
    Ha, Babyzilla strikes again!
    Spy did a great job on the plane. I remember those days and the scooter, too. Sigh.
    I thought my son was the latest for garlic planting – Christmas Day – but you have him beat! Happy 2015!
