It's time for Week #8 of the Farmhouse and Friends Garden Mystery Quilt Block!!

This week on March 20th was the first day of Spring
 which means that gardening is just around the corner!!

I have such fun memories of my dad starting
 the garden every year.
 Planting peas were the first thing that went into the ground! 
 Now I am not a fan of peas and as a young girl
 I remember having to sit at the table all by myself until i ate my peas!!! 

My memory recalls the CANNED peas and I just don't like them.....
but planting, picking, and shelling them was the fun part as a kid. 
I do have to say that I like to eat the peas fresh off the vine!! 

So in memory of my dad and his garden, my garden block is pea plants started in egg shells!! 
Such a fun way to start your plants and watch them grow!!   
Happy Stitching and Happy Gardening!!

Love this block! Peas are the first thing to go into our garden also. Still a few weeks to go here in the Great White North!

Darling block and loved your memory with your Dad. I grew up on a small farm and there is nothing better than fresh vegetables. When I was young and first asked to “weed” the garden, I thought I had done an awesome job. Come to find out I had weeded all the 🥕🥕🥕 carrots, hehe Thanks for sharing your pattern, great job!

How beautiful ... the block and the memories! Thank you for sharing. I have always loved frozen peas, hated canned peas, and have learned as an adult that I love fresh peas.
