Finally! The peas are starting to germinate like crazy. All varieties are sprouting with what looks like excellent germination rates. I was a bit leery as most of the seed planted was home saved from last year. It seems that peas seeds are easy to save as bean seeds.
This spring, for the first time I'm having problems with birds nipping the seedlings. The culprits are the Junco's. These have always been winter birds departing early in the spring. I'm just hoping that they have their flight out booked very soon. I just hope that they have not decided to stay for the summer.
