Cream Peas

I planted some cream peas the other day from some seeds that my cousin sent me, because she knows how much I love peas. I had been waiting until the ground temperature got above 70 degrees, the recommended temperature for planting peas. I also bought a couple of standing trellises ($15 at Lowe's) for the vines to climb as they grow. I put the seeds around the base of the trellis and used my finger to push them down a couple of inches into the soil. In just a couple of days the seeds had sprouted and began to grow.

I stopped the other day at a roadside stand and bought a pound of similar ones for $5. They had come from south Texas.
