Today was so exceptionally warm and beautiful that it got me thinking about spring and gardening. Looking at the calendar I realized that St. Patrick's day is right around the corner... time to get in gear if we want to have peas this year.
The kids and I are pea fanatics. In Michigan we grew 4 double rows of peas one spring -- and ate every pea. Not a single pea made it to the freezer.
Peas didn't grow well in Georgia... so the last time we grew peas was 2004... so here is a picture of my garden from May 2004!
I ordered seed catalogs. As soon as this snow melts, I am going to site the raised bed for the peas. Spring is so close I can almost taste it!
