Chickpeas in the garden!

Well, hey, I love hummus. Who doesn't? So one day, I had this great idea: I can grow it in my garden!

After doing some research, I discovered that chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are not a popular garden item as they only grow TWO PEAS PER POD, and not a huge profusion on each plant - so you have to have a lot of plants and a lot of time on your hands to harvest them. "But what the heck," I thought ... and planted them anyway.

I doubt I'll be making any hummus from these, but they are a delight to grow. I'll update later on how many I get off these two (yes, only two) plants... :)
