There’s not much I can grow in Florida’s heat during July and August, sometimes September. I can grow peas, however, as they love the heat.
On Monday, my good friend Evie, and her wonderful sister-in-law Shorty, came to help me weed a few rows for peas. If it wasn’t for that dadburn dollar weed, my weeding situation would not be so difficult. Evie must not have liked plowing a few weeks ago because she turned the hand plow over to Shorty who did a real good job of deep plowing to get all those dollar weed runners. Here, Shorty is giving Evie some instruction:
After we finished weeding three rows, we planted Pinkeye Purplehull and Scarlet Pinkeye Peas. Today, just four days later if you count today, those peas are up one and one-half to two inches.
