Peas went in this afternoon, five square feet, 36 to a square. The sweet peas are only 16 to a square. Now that they are all tucked into the loam, I wonder if I should have got at least one climbing type instead of all short vines. I'll plant more peas in mid March. Maybe then I will put in my favorite variety, Maestro. It is a short vine, only about four feet tall, but still needs support. I am so annoyed with myself for not reading the label closer on the shell peas I chose. The company is in Oregon but the packet clearly says that the seed is from China. How did I miss that? I would rather support American farmers then an agro business in a country whose organic practices I am not sure of. Live and learn.
Just in case the weather does not take a snow day in March, I took a chance and planted one square of bok choi and one of spinach. The first week of March I want to plant more squares; two of lettuce, more bok choi, a chard, a Brussels sprout and a couple of broccoli.
