    I have mixed feelings about those convenient old gardener’s quips, but I’ve heard a few people say that when the Forsythia blooms it’s time to plant peas.  It seemed about right to me this year (and yes, I do also like my soil thermometer), so Erica and I planted peas peas peas –  shelling, snap, snow, and sweet peas!  And we’re pretty proud of the trellises we rigged up for them too!
