Moonlight Plantings

So Patrick read last year that the traditional time to plant peas is by the moonlight of St. Patrick's Day. I'm not sure why--good luck? Faster harvest? Sweeter peas? In any case, we went for it with a flashlight in hand.

This is our third or fourth year planting peas, and I'm in love with them. Fresh peas are just so wonderful. And little Fisher loves them too, so we plant extras for him.

I'm glad your gardening is going well. I wish everyone would give peas a chance.

We planted peas on St. Patrick's Day in 2011 and had peas before the farmers at the markets even had them... with such a mild winter forecast for our area, I'm looking forward to planting even earlier this year.
