Like these?

Next season you're gonna Winter Sow, right? Whistling

I WSed those on January 9th and planted them in the garden about 3 weeks ago. So far, so good. Never grew peas before, so I'm holding my breath. I love peas and do want to be successful.

Please share anything you know about growing them, ok?

Hugs!

Probably not the peas. Peas and beans do well direct sown and don't really like to have their roots disturbed. I did have a few peas last year, but did them way too late to have any real success.

I keep hearing that about peas and beans, and wouldn't you know I teased all those roots apart and planted individual pea seedlings and haven't lost a single one (yet?)

But, they look good today. Still need that trellis.

AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Crying

I think I'm afraid of trellises for some strange reason...

I've got $100 worth of tomato trellis lumber all cut out just waiting for me to screw it together -- it's some strange sorta fear of messing it all up....

Are you making tepee type trellis or something fancy?

I just have old metal cages that I turn upside down in the winter to protect my roses. I hope that my tomatoes get big enough to need a trellis this year. Last year was a bad tomato year for me. Too cold and wet.

I planted half of a package of peas yesterday. I have white trellis against the building behind my flower garden. By summer, they are filled with morning glories, but I sneak some peas and sweet peas on them early. I usually wait at least another week to 10 days, but thought I may be able to get an early start with warm weather. I still have half the pack in reserve to plant a week or so later. The weather was so bad last year that I didn't get any peas at all.

Andi,
All may not be lost regarding a trellis. I just hit the BAMBOO motherlode!

I have a co-worker who's vacant house is on the market. With all that bamboo on his property! We're going to cut as much as I want/need this weekend!

Making the trellis will be easy, now!

None of my peas sprouted, yet, after 10 days. Should I be worried?

Bamboo gives NASTY splinters! You cant see them and they sting! Use gloves.
The easiest saw to use to cut bamboo this is 3/4" or thicker is a PVC saw.

Only a few of mine have sprouted, so we're going to plant more today. ("We" = the husband because I have to run to work.) We figured it was because a few days after we planted them, it froze and snowed a bit. Not sure, but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Hello Stephanie,
Birds may be eating your seeds. After sowing cover the area temporarily with plastic netting until the seeds sprout. - Norma
