Presprouting Peas

Presprouting is great to do for peas.  By doing this you’re promised that your seeds won’t rot before they sprout under the soil (due to cold temperatures).  It also guarantees that you won’t be wasting your time planting some seeds that might not even sprout at all causing you to wait and fall back in the garden season schedule.

Directions:
Take your pea seeds and dip them in some water to get them wet.
Then take a paper towel and wet it.  Put your peas in the middle of the paper towel and wrap up, like a envelope.
Put in a plastic bag with the top corner vented a little bit.
Leave sit for a few days, soon enough they will sprout. 🙂
