Today I planted peas. Yes, St. Patty's Day is ridiculously early for outdoor planting in Minnesota and I know its a gamble. But that is OK for a number of reasons.
- The first plantings go into large containers. These are above ground and can take advantage of solar gain to warm up earlier than the ground. I can place the containers in locations that get a full day of sun.
- I plant peas multiple times in the Spring. This allows for extended harvest, and if I lose the first planting there are more to come.
- Its only a dozen seeds.
