THE PEAS KNOW (I ASKED THEM)

in gardening •  7 days ago 

Sometimes it's hard to tell when the "proper time" to plant certain is.

Recently I did an experiment, figuring that the plants themselves might know. Several weeks ago, I planted a couple of rows of peas, thinking that they'd remain dormant until the proper time to sprout. It looks like it worked, as they are now finally popping up. After their cue, I've been planting more peas in a lot of my raised beds, hoping to get multiple harvests of various vegetables thsi year from the same beds that I'll grow other things in as well.

Our tell-tale up here in the frozen spanse of Minisnowta, is the earth worm. Once we find them in the upper realms of the garden soil, we know it's safe to plant something.

And then nature promptly tries to kill it with freak weather..... /sigh

LOL - I can relate to that last sentence for sure... just when you thought it was safe. Sometimes back in WI I wouldn't plant tomatoes or peppers in the actual garden until June 1st I was so scared!
