|~ snow peas ~|
The snow peas have sprouted!
They were planted February 25th during a spell of clear but cold weather & covered with plastic sheeting to protect the soil from the rain & to keep out the birds. The soil temperature this year on this day was 5 degrees Celsius - much warmer than last year!
Now that they have sprouted, it's time to lift up the plastic off the soil by a few inches - might use pop bottle cloches to protect the seedlings from hungry birds.
Hopefully I'll find the time to build a pea trellis in the next few weeks!!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
