Peas appear

Sugar Ann sugar snap peas

The first peas suddenly popped. A bit of welcome action in the field, amidst all the dryness and slow germination. These are Sugar Ann snap peas, edible pod. There’s 1000′, double rows, 3-4″ row spacing. They’re coming up well in stretches, but a lot haven’t yet appeared. Well, there should be some real rain tonight! On the right of the pic, a fine example of PIGWEED doing its stuff as well, keeping pace with the gardening effort all on its own. (Yes, lying on your stomach in the dirt is the easiest way to get the macro centered on these little guys!)

    Wow. So jealous. We should have had peas weeks ago, but I’m too cheap to rent a rototiller, and it keeps raining/snowing/hailing, and I’ve been stuck traveling for work. I just want to reach through the computer and smell those beautiful sprouts. Keep it coming!

    I think peas are some of the most hopeful of all the new shoots.   So powerful and hopeful.   I’ve yet to see any peas but with this morning’s light frost I was glad for any germination to remain underground

    Don’t you just love it when they start popping up. It’s just such a sign of the season being off to a good start! Looking good!
