This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Pea harvest

Well, this is my pea harvest for the year. Three packages of pea seeds. A mix of snap and snow peas. My peas just didn't sprout well and they grew slowly. Same as in previous years. It was suggested I add innoculum, which I will try next year if I don't give up on peas. The lettuce is a much better use of space for us. By the way, I steamed the peas (5 min) and served them with fancy French sea salt. Very tasty.

Pisum sativum

I've given up on peas. The soil where I had them was too rocky maybe. Resort to buying them at the market. Fresh peas are so good!

I'm all for giving up on growing them.

I almost gave up, but tried again this spring and had my best pea crop ever. And it took literally years of trying.

It doesn't seem like inoculant was your problem.

I hope the capucijners do better. In my experience they are hardier and more prolific than most other pea plants.
