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.
