Started the peas (sprouted them indoors, then stuck them into the ground) on March 26, a couple weeks later than usual.  Brutally cold spring, with early January temperatures (teens) in March and April. But the peas are doing well.

This year, 4 varieties. Little Marvel (shell) to the left, super sugar snap and super snappy (edible pod, or shell) in the middle, and wando (shell) to the right. In the middle, super snappy is closer than sugar snap in the photo.

Hey wow! Pea seeds don't last long! frown With my usual sprout 'em indoors pea trick, I wasn't getting enough germination to fill my pea fences. Rather than wait for seeds to arrive ordered online (because I was already planting late), I bought a bunch of seeds from Walmart and Home Depot, and now have eight varieties of peas planted.

 It's spring! Saith the calendar. The weather doesn't say that as clearly. Last snow was... Thursday, with more coming tomorrow. But! There's a whole week with no temperatures forecast below 28 degrees! Close enough for the earliest stuff! Planting out pre-sprouted peas this afternoon, planted spinach and radish seeds, have bunch of transplant greens and pansies still protected indoors.

Fall Crops 2012

 The fall crops are peas (super snappy edible-podded and sugar sprint snap peas), lettuce (mostly romaine and buttercrunch), and a single surviving baby choi. I started a bunch of peas under the melons in August, but they got very spindly that way. A few more replaced where the beans were, late in August, but half of those died somehow. So, not a lot. At least aphids don't seem to be infesting the greens this year.
