One Response to planting the peas

  1. Glad to hear that you’re working on a PDF for the snoods! When you do sell those snood directions my Cavalier will be very happy indeed.
    Seemed like a very looooooong winter where I live, so like you I’m champing at the bit to plant ANYTHING green and sprouting. Happy growing!
