Fall Peas

October 9th, 2014

My fall peas are just reaching the point where they’re starting to fill out the pods. Truth be told I should have planted them a few weeks earlier, but I couldn’t since the garlic wasn’t ready to be harvested yet.

When it comes to fall/winter gardening, the cool weather isn’t quite as big of a deal as the reduced daylight hours. Things are much slower to mature since they’re getting 3-5 fewer hours of sunlight. That’s definitely something to remember when sowing for a second harvest.

I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll survive long enough to produce a decent crop for the freezer.

Do you have any fall/winter crops that are ready to harvest?
