Well spring is here, so far it has been really dry and relatively warm overall (not today!). On march 18th I started my peas as I always do in rootrainers(Made in Canada!) and germinated in the cold frame. That way they don't rot and the squirrels can't eat them. They are off to the races now and I will soon plant them out under one of the trellises. This year I am growing "Pea Seeds for Peace" that were kindly shared by Yan at Soggy Creek Seed Co. Here is a series of photos I took:

I first presoaked the seed and then planted them out. 23
days later they are ready for planting. Unfortunately the
slugs got a few of them...

Also in the frame is a few cells of greens that are ready for
planting as well.
