Sugar Snap Peas Are Planted!

The sugar snap peas are this years first plants to be covered up by soil in the garden.  Yesterday, while shivering in the cold sunlight, we took our pre-sprouted peas and planted them.  It is still cold out, so even though growth might be slow in the beginning for them to emerge, hopefully we will see them big and strong soon.

This year we are changing things up and are growing them not up the fence, but instead around our gazebo like trellis.

Nature, isn’t it amazing?  If you haven’t tried presprouting, give it a shot.

Holes are made with our fingers, then peas are inserted in.

This year we are trying this pea booster – hopefully it works well.

So that gets sprinkled in each hole…

Then we do a little song and dance involving lots of cheering and the words “love” and “grow big” before covering them up with soil.

Then we get some water that was collected from the rain.. Can I tell you how freezing I am in this picture? My hands felt as red as the water container.

Then each pea spot gets watered.

Now we wait… hope to see you soon sugar snap peas!
