Planting Peas in the Garden

Everybody is thinking about their gardens. Here at the farm, we have all been very productive - we planted lots of new trees and shrubs, we finished prepping the flower garden, and we planted our first crop in the vegetable garden - peas!

Peas thrive in cool weather, and young plants can even tolerate light frosts. It’s important to plant peas as soon as possible in spring in order to get a full harvest before hot summer temperatures arrive.
My head gardener, Ryan McCallister, planted several varieties of shelling peas and edible pods along the new pea trellises in the vegetable garden. Here are some photos - enjoy.
