Do You Soak Your Peas?
Do you soak your peas before planting them? Since I'm a novice gardener, I try to research or make notes from more experienced gardeners blogs. I read that you should soak peas at least 8 hours before planting. So I did! Little did I know that they would increase during that time period. OMG, it was like an explosion in those little bowls, lol.
I decided to do a succession planting of the Wando sweet pea. So far they're progressing nicely. I'm looking forward to harvesting these sweet peas for soup and baby food. I also planted a few Nantes baby carrots and more Blue Lake green beans. We've had lots of rain the past week, so I'm hoping that they all germinate. If the weather cooperates this week-end, I'll put in spinach and a few Cherokee Wax Bean plants for black bean soup and dip. Need to get the garlic and strawberries in for next year's harvest too. What's in your fall garden?
