Give Peas a chance - or not
It was last week, before the temperature climbed over 100.
Then the heat did in the plants.
I decided to pull them put to plant pole beans.
But the promise of four or five more peas isn't enough to save the plants. It's nice and cool today, but the hot weather is around the corner.
Out they will come. It's a shame that the hot weather came so quickly and intensely. I normally would have gotten a few more weeks from the plants.
But the good news is that I can plant peas for the fall harvest in early July. There will be peas on [my] earth!
(How corny can you get!)
What's the gardeners favorite novel?
War and Peas.
(Pretty corny. I'm going to stop now.)
