Peas Podded

Sorry, so bad in so many directions. Couldn’t resist.

Planting Peas

Peas are a new experiment for Plants on Deck and, according to the Philadelphia County Cooperative Extension, the time is ripe for planting. Prussian Blue Peas, courtesy of Bartram’s Garden will, one hopes, wind their way up POF’s handrail and the Maestros will grace the little blue deck. Peas don’t transplant particularly well, so they’ve been direct-seeded in rich soil with a pinch of rhizobium, a little organic fertilizer and a few tablespoons of coffee grounds to boost the soil’s nitrogen levels.

Here’s hoping we can harvest these lovelies before the precious real estate is required for heat-loving melons, tomatoes, and cucumbers!
