Enjoying First Harvest

First harvest: sweet peas, June 29, 2014
Gardening is one of my hobbies. It helps me to release my mind from routine activities. It's also a simple and cheap medicine to release stress.
I decided to have more organized spot by digging a long row on the ground and planted couple kinds of vegetables. I have some sweet peas (from seeds), 2 cucumbers (from seeds), 1 hybrid cherry tomatoes (from a small plant I bought), and 1 hybrid sweet pepper (from a small plant I bought).
I still have 1 pot of watermelon from seed that needs to be planted soon. Last evening I had prepared the spot to plant this. One chili plant is still sprouting (my experiment for the second time) and  it will be ready next several weeks to be planted on the pot.
This morning I had my first harvest for sweet peas. I cooked them  to make a bowl of simple salad: Rotini, tuna, sweet peas and sun-dried tomatoes pesto. It was tasty and everybody liked it. (*)
