Spring is on the way!

On our morning trip out into the garden I found FLOWERS! The Snowdrops and Winter Aconite are blooming. The snowdrops are my signal to plant peas.Winter Aconite
Eranthis hyemalis
(please note: all parts of Winter Aconite are poisonous)

I am growing two varieties of sugar snap peas (edible pod peas). Last year we had good luck with the Super Sugar Snap peas from Ed Hume Seeds, so we are growing those again but, only 1/2 a row; the half of the row is Sugar Pop Snap Peas from New Dimension Seeds. We will see which peas do best.
