Never had luck with peas. In April always caught powdery mildew and died before they ever set fruit.

This year we planted the peas in Jan., this seems to be working. Looking forward to harvesting our own peas.

I am dreaming about fresh garden peas. As soon as the soil is warm enough to work, I am putting in some pea seeds. What kind are you growing, chscholz?

Nothing quite like fresh peas. they usually don’t make the kitchen though, as I consume them right from the pod, ...
in the garden.

We planted pea seeds yesterday! Your photos inspired me. I found a snow-free patch in the garden and planted a row of early peas. I will be looking for little sprouts. They will know when the soil is warm enough to start growing…..
