It’s always a rich day when I plant the first seeds in the garden. Sunny and warm, it was wonderful turning the earth and preparing the soil, being careful of the many precious worms! Peas are so easy, and they don’t mind the chilly temperatures of April, so they are always the first thing I plant in spring (and you can plant sugar snap peas, vine length of about 30″, in a large pot too. Just give them a little support). I planted “Cascadia” sugar snap peas as they are great raw right from the vine and usually an easy breakfast or lunch as I munch on them while checking on other plants in the garden in late May and June. I will look for them to be up in as little as 5 days! Swiss Chard is next in my garden. Happy gardening!
