Day 15: Oregon Sugar Pod Peas

The pea seeds were put in wet paper towels for pre-sprouting on March 8.  Rootlets appeared only a few days later on March 11 and they were planted outside in an EarthBox on the balcony the same day.

Temperatures during pre-sprouting indoors were in the 70’s (Fahrenheit).  Outside on the balcony, the peas now are experiencing temperatures in the 20’s to 50’s. 

This picture was taken on March 22 - 15 days after the peas were started  The pea seedlings have cheerfully popped out above the soil.  I cut little openings in the Earthbox cover to allow them to grow upwards and get some sun.

These Oregon Sugar Pod peas are supposed to be ready for harvest 60-65 days after planting.
