Last Call PNW.....Peas and spinach! (end of March)

Post  Lavender Debs on 3/23/2010, 10:22 am

Wendy of the “Muck About” blog has posted a reminder that Maritime Pacific Northwest gardeners are reaching the end of our season for peas, including sweet peas, and for spinach and radishes. The next time we will have good conditions for these vegetables will be in fall for our winter gardens.

Plant these much later and spinach will bolt and radishes will become bitter hot. Peas will survive but not thrive once the weather turns vacation warm. Enation on peas is a summer problem. Plant lice (aphids) spread this warm weather disease. According to Steve Solomon, pea flavor drops off as light hours decrease in late summer. So even if you can control the aphids and the ants that farm them, garden space should still be given to other crops in late summer, which brings me back to, if you have not planted your peas, plant them now. You should be eating your first peas for the 4th of July in a good year.

Wendy of Muck About suggests that this late in the year peas should soak for 24 hours before poking them into the box. She strongly recommends that soaking be done in wet paper towels instead of a bowl of water to prevent over soaking and bursting the protective skin which makes the seed susceptible to rot.

Early Potato's should be in the ground and your peppers should be in a pot with you running to check every morning to see if it has popped out of the soil yet.
