So…Now I have to make a decision about living arrangements pretty soon.  What was once an easily affordable home at my old salary has now become somewhat a burden at the new rate of pay (don’t kid yourself, a salary cut to 40% of what you are used to making changes your world).  But the current digs has mucho gardening space and a great landlady.  I am honestly thinking about a roommate but have to discuss it with the boys.

So anyway, Peas are my first crop planted.  I have a running dispute with my neighbor about the planting, she claims that you should always get them in before the first of March, I wait until the soil temp goes over 47° F.  Who knows, but after reading this,  I think that I will hold off for a little while on planting the peas.

You're renting? Find a cheaper place! Better yet, find some junk land and get an RV. Then you'll be "layoff proof". I'm just sayin....

It's a good idea to wait just a bit. A few years back I got very determined to have some snowpeas, so a 7 yo and I hacked a couple of 4 ft rows into an old garden area and planted peas in February. Some were not even covered up all the way. We did get good crop but it would have been better if we had been more patient.
