Do you know what that is?
It’s a soil thermometer.
Can you see what it says?
It says, “Time to plant peas!”
I know, I know… I’m rushing things. It’s entirely possible that Winter isn’t done with us yet. We could have a blizzard, or a month of below-zero temperatures.
But, what if we don’t?
If the moderate temps are actually here to stay, we could be eating fresh peas by the end of April, rather than June…and they would have the opportunity to produce for a longer season, before summer’s heat shuts them down.
My mouth is watering at the thought…
What’s the worst thing that could happen anyway? If they freeze, or rot from excess moisture, I’ll just replant at the ‘right’ time. There are plenty left in the packet for a second sowing…
You don’t think I’m crazy, do you, Cleo?
