The ground is finally warm enough for planting. First up: peas! Eric was on the fence about including them in our first year, but I'm an insane pea lover and with some gentle persuading (ie, harassment), he was convinced. You're welcome, fellow pea fanatics.

Prepping the soil for peas.

That said, even after I talked Eric into it, the snow took so long to melt this year that we almost missed the window for planting. I would have been a sad pea enthusiast indeed...

Dried peas are soaked in water overnight and then planted.
