Peas and Onions

     Yesterday the weather was a bit colder and starting to go downhill so we thought it would be a good idea to get the peas and onions in the ground. We are a little behind on our planting schedule due to the long cold winter.
Rows of onions
                                                                                                                                                                           The variety of onions we planted came from Territorial Seed company in cottage Grove, Oregon.                               

     I like Territorial Seed because they have good quality seeds and they signed the safe seed pledge which means they don't use genetically modified seeds.  The variety I planted is the Northern Mixed bunch which consists of Walla Walla, Redwing and Ringmaster.

Pea Towers
We put up the pea towers and got the peas in the ground.  We planted super sugar snap peas.  They did very well last year so we thought we'd plant them again this year.

     Thank God we started planting yesterday because today it is cold and rainy.
