Re: where did everyone go?!?
In this area it is traditional to plant peas on St. Patrick's day.
We have done it for years, even though sometimes the
ground was still partly frozen or there was snow. The peas
don't seem to mind the cold. We usually have peas in late
May and early June. I have found the Sugar Snaps and
Oregon Sugar Pods bear longer than the "shelling" peas.
Keeping them picked every day helps to keep them coming.
Can't plant beans until the ground is warm, though.

So do you get peas in the winter or do they grow until spring and then
