Tall Telephone Pea Sprouts

May 30, 2008

I’m so bad at planting peas in early spring when the soil is still cold.  It’s the best time for them as peas really like cold weather and can withstand a few light frosts.  About three weeks ago I dragged myself to pre-sprout some Tall Telephone pea seeds on my heating mat and then planted them in a tiny corner of my garden.

Who knows, maybe I’ll have a tiny bumper crop which will carry over to next year and I’ll get my act together to plant peas early in the chilly spring.

And for the record I still have to get around to planting carrots, onion bulbs (way, way late) and bush beans.  I really should be more disciplined and stick to my planting dates.  Maybe I need a gardening buddy to whip me into shape.

    Alas, I can not be that buddy. My peas, carrots and bush beans are NOT happy with me. A few are pushing their way through but most have thumbed their noses at me…

  2. Would you like me to annoyingly ‘remind’ you to plant your peas in the spring? I am happy too. I annoyingly remind all my neighbours of their planting dates. Ask them. Actually, better not…

    Ha ha ha, yes! That is exactly what I need! I’m such a bad procrastinator when it comes to peas, carrots too! You can send me emails like:

    “Did you plant your peas yet?”
    “Hey, you should plant your peas already”
    “Come on, peas won’t plant themselves!”
    “Plant your peas. Now.”
    “Get those %$#@!& peas in the ground or else!”
