Well, Mr. Adams and Ron flew back to the boat to go back to work, and I am down in Oregon visiting my Mom and Dad for a few days, but before we all left town I put the boys to work helping me move the pea tunnel.
Every year I rotate the peas to a different row. They could be grown in the same spot, but they do so much better if they are grown in a different spot each year. Unfortunately, the tunnel is not easy to move, and I didn't have a lot of time, so the guys very kindly agreed to help me.
Once the peas are planted they MUST be covered with row cover or the ducks and other tweety birds will find them and eat them all. Don't ask me how they know they're there, they just do. Usually I cover both sides of each side of the tunnel with a narrow strip of row cover, but it is SUCH a pain. So, this year I just covered the entire thing! Now it's like a greenhouse. You just go in one end and it's easy to water and weed!
It's a poor man's greenhouse!
I soaked the peas overnight and planted them the next morning. Right before I got on the plane for Oregon.
