The Peas Have Finally Been Planted!

I keep mentioning what a cold spring it's been.  It was so cold, in fact, that back in mid-March, when it was officially time to plant the peas, the ground was still frozen.  We're nearing the end of April and it still feels like mid-March, but the peas have finally been planted.  Peas thrive in cool temperatures and they really should be planted as early as possible in the spring so that they'll grow and produce a full harvest before hot summer weather arrives, which puts an abrupt end to production.  A variety of peas was planted along the fence in the new vegetable garden.
