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 moved to Malden, MA in April of 2006. I'm trying to get to know my new community, so I'm involved in lots of volunteer efforts around town. Most of my free time is spent on knitting and gardening. And watching Netflixed episodes of Babylon 5.
