It’s that time of the year again… a sugar snap pea planting post!
Every year I post about them with pretty much the same pictures and details, and every single year I post about them with crazy enthusiasm. I mean there’s no garden without sugar snap peas growing!
Last year we grew a bunch of sugar snap pea plants but this year (as always) we kicked it up a bit. There will be 93 sugar snap pea plants! There’s 22 in one 4×4 box in the back, 22 in another 4×4 box in the back and then 49 plants that will take up a entire 4×4 box. We’re one sugar snap pea loving family as you can tell.
About a week ago we started pre-sprouting the peas inside. Pre-sprouting will make sure your peas will grow once they’re in the soil as you’ll visually see they have already started. This makes growing more stress free as if it’s already pre-sprouted you can be pretty sure it will pop through the soil in a few days and that it’s not rotting underneath. Here’s a how to pre-sprout your peas tutorial I made a couple years ago.
After they sit in their plastic baggy for a few days, you’ll take them out and see they’ve all sprouted. That means they’re ready for the ground!
