Last Wednesday, during our energy audit, I sowed a second planting of Sugar Ann snap peas, and the next morning, Dan helped me sow two more squares of snap beans. This morning, I went to check on them and give them some water, and we already have sprouting! YES! I love snap peas and you can be sure I won’t be bothering with shelling peas again. They are delicious, but with snap peas, I get more pea and less work, and I can live with that. I especially like the Sugar Ann snaps, they are very tender and sweet.
We sowed a mix of green, yellow and purple snap peas, which should make for some pretty dilly beans later in the season. I put them in the space left when I pulled our garlic. Most have a harvest date of 52+ days, so we should get some before a frost. I hope.
