Peas – Good hack if you had spaces in your trellis

While I had good success with peas this summer, there were still some spaces where the peas did not germinate. Replanting can be preempted by other chores and lower your production.
The Hack: soak your peas, and change the water several times a day until they’ve sent out their roots, then put them into small pots of gardening soil. This will ensure there’s no problems with germination. This can also be done with other seeds as well, and – as Kenny Point recommends – you can even “add a splash of liquid kelp” to get the slow starters moving.
I’m going to be trying my hand at some “Tom Thumb Peas” this winter in my “growing room” (as my nephew says “only a die-hard gardener would change a full bath into a half bath.”), and hope to update the results – good or bad – in coming posts. See Kenny’s site at

    Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at
    a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

      Bluehost works fairly well, but not loading WP down with a lot of extra plug ins helps, optimizing your pics for the web also helps.
