Cool Weather Progress – Just Peas

December 11, 2010

I tried to plant a few things in September to take advantage of the cooler weather.  I also wanted to try to start everything in the ground instead of indoors in peat pods to see if the plants would come in sturdier.  So I planted lettuce, quinoa, broccoli, cauliflower, and peas in the raised garden beds.  Most everything sprouted with a week or two, but almost none of it made it very far. 😦  

During the month after I planted seeds and sprouts started coming up, Southern California was drenched in rain for 4 days, which was then followed by ca-razy winds!  I’m pretty sure some of the nearby birds helped themselves too.  Anyway, the reason I haven’t had the motivation to come back here and put up an update is because there didn’t seem much to update.  The only real growth that you can see if coming from the dwarf gray sugar peas.  I grew these once before this past summer, totally ignoring the rule that these are cool weather plants.  I managed to get a pretty good handful of peas throughout the summer.  I’m hoping I get even more peas with this winter planting.
