Such brave little sprouts “the sturdy seedling with arched body comes Shouldering its way and shedding the earth crumbs”.
I planted my peas on March 17 – St Patrick’s Day. Today I looked out the window and thought I saw something in the soil. Sure enough, five rows of pea sprouts. I will plant a couple more rows at Easter for a later crop. Peas (leaves and stems but not the pods) are very hardy to the cold and I am sure they will be fine with whatever weather comes this year. They are in my side yard – I plant here because the chipmunks eat them at the community plot.
