Yesterday, I soaked some peas to prepare them for planting. I counted out two dozen, then decided to use all the remaining peas and buy more next year. I bought these peas last year and wouldn’t have had enough for next year anyway.
I thought I’d show you how much the peas plump up when they’re soaked.
This morning, I planted the peas. I made a trench about an inch (2.5 cm) deep next to the areas where only a few peas were growing but a few inches (7 or 8 cm) away so I wouldn’t disturb any pea plants that might still be coming up. I covered the peas but didn’t have to water them as it rained last night and more rain is predicted for this weekend.
