Planting Peas in the Garden

The peas I planted on Feb. 3 are ready to go into the garden! They gave gotten so big that they are grabbing on to each other with their tendrils. It is a tad on the late side to be planting peas, but oh well. Homegrown peas are incredibly sweet and juicy. Last year I would just hang out in the garden and eat them by the handful!

They are big!

The bed where the peas will make their new home.

After turning the soil, I put the metal/bamboo climbing structure in.

And they're planted!

  1. How are they doing? Do you have seeds outside yet? We have 2 feet of snow in Maine but I hear spring will come some day.

    • Oh yes! All the plants have been moved back outside, including the tomato starts. Spring is around the corner for us!!

  2. I meant to ask if the ground was warm enough to start seeds directly outside yet, but good to hear that the tomatoes have joined the peas in the great outdoors. Here we can plant peas in mid-April and move out tomato plants in late May.

    • Yep, it is definitely warm enough to plant directly in the ground. My mom actually planted her peas right before the snow storm (in the ground) and they are coming up now. In central TX we are lucky to have two growing seasons because of our temperate climate.
