    Yesterday I planted peas in the 40 degree misty weather. Today Mother Nature brought us sleet and 10 degree temps and those peas are covered in an icy blanket. Here in Oklahoma, you can't wait too late to plant peas. It gets too hot too soon and the peas suffer. They'll ride out the cold snug in the dirt until just the right moment.

    Thank you for your comments! I keep pigeons just for the enjoyment. I have Birmingham Rollers and watching them fly is a kind of meditation for me.

    I wish I could keep chickens! Do you raise pigeons for eggs, meat, or as pets? Voted!

    Nice fresh eggs from the backyard. I'd like to be able to do that.
