In the Garden ~ Peas, Please. A Pea-Sized Giveaway

It's a tad late in the plating season (for us in the upper Sacramento Valley, at least) to be planting peas, but it's not too late.  From my experience, peas are an easier plant to grow, making them friendly to both new and experienced gardeners.  They are a gorgeous addition to the home garden, especially as they creep up a trellis or twine and begin to bloom.

I planted my peas with some Ukon Gold potato tubers, because peas and taters are good companions, so I've read.
But what they are not friends with is garlic.  Just a head's up.
I don't know how I did it, but I managed to buy four packets of peas this year.  It just makes sense to give one away, you know?  So I am.  It seems like the right thing to do.
So here's the packet I'm giving away to a garden home who will plant the little seeds with love:  Pinetree Garden's Cascadia Snap Pea.  Give them 48 days, and you should have a pea harvest on your hands.  That sounds... weird.  But you know what I mean.  Oh, and don't worry, after I took this picture, the seeds went right back to a cool, dark place, awaiting their earthen home.

This giveaway begins Tuesday, March 23 at10:00am, PST, and ends Friday, March 26 at 4:00pm, PST.
