Last night I started soaking the pea seeds in water.
This is how they looked this morning...
Nice and plump.
I'm always nervous to put them in water because once you do you are committed to planting them within 24 hours, and once you plant them you are committed to covering them before you quit for the day or the birds will eat every one of them. Don't ask me how they know there are in there, 2 inches under the soil...they just do. Here they are with the innoculant...
Well, they are in...
....and covered with whatever I could find in the dark. The last 10 feet of one row is covered with coats that were hanging in the sunroom. Tomorrow is another day, I will fix it in the morning.
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
To get a copy of my book, "How To Grow Vegetables In Sitka, Alaska" just give me a call....The books are $20 plus tax. If you live out of town and want me to mail you a copy, you can mail a check for $25.60 to:
