The peas here have been almost 7 months in the making. In mid-November, I was standing with an empty manure bench and a half-empty bag of pea seeds, where I suddenly discovered that it said they could be sown from November. So I sowed them almost merely as an impulse, and was almost about to give them up because for a long time absolutely nothing happened in the cold soil. Suddenly shortly before Christmas, the sprouts began to appear, and in total, almost 75% of the sprouts survived the winter. When the heat came sometime in March, the growth really started, and if May had not been so disgustingly cold, the first harvest would probably have been possible a few weeks earlier. The variety is Exzellenz from Dobies - Meteor from Thompson & Morgan can also be used. If you do not have a manure bench, this can also be done by covering the bed with plastic - otherwise there will also be a party for the pigeons.
