Plantings peas for fruits and pea tendrils
Saturday, I checked the soil
temperature in the mule garden and got a reading of 40 degrees
Fahrenheit, so I soaked a handful of snow peas to prepare for Sunday
planting. But when I headed out with peas and thermometer the
next day, the soil temperature had dropped to 33. Oops. I
suspect my Saturday measurement was taken too late in the day to get an
idea of the current soil baseline temperature, which is almost
certainly still too cold for peas. Since the peas
were soaked, I went ahead and put them in the ground, but I'm not
holding my breath about getting a crop from this early planting.
