When I planted them from seed in September - it was probably still too warm, I thought since they were from seed, by the time they got going it would cool down, It was probably in the upper 80's here, in the last month since they have sprouted it has been nicer, Right now this is out second spell of really cold weather (I know, I don't know cold) but for Florida this is cold. About 50 at night and the past three days have been about 65 in the daytime - alot less humid for the past month. All plants have started performing much better since the first cold snap about 3 weeks ago, you think they will pick up - they look fine, no disease or browning, just small looking plants. The pea pods that have formed were super tasty - I picked one and tried it, I just don't know if they get better with cooler weather or if this is typical in the beginning. I tried to find pictures of a mature pea plant to see what it should look like, but couldn't find any. I thought when I planted the first batch in the shade of the Okra ( I have a book that recommends that for fall plantings) that would shield them from to much heat. again they do not look heat stressed at all from outward appearances. Thanks
I love this! - There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.
