Keep peas off the heating mats
In every part of gardening, there are inevitably setbacks when you try something new. My fancy seed-starting setup
started off great, producing healthy onion seedlings and quickly
sprouting lettuce and kale seeds. But the peas refused to come up. And
when I poked in the dirt atop the latter, I discovered that every single
seed had rotted in the ground.
Putting on my thinking
cap, I came up with three potential problems. Possibility one --- peas
hate stump dirt. Possibility two --- the year-old pea seeds just weren't
viable. Or --- the possibility I suspected was actually the most
relevant --- our new heating mats exceeded the maximum germination temperature for these cold-weather legumes.
