Sowing peas

            They always tell you to sow your peas as soon as the soil can be worked. Well, this is fine to say, but around here that means March. So what happens is that a day comes when the soil is ready, the peas are ready, the tools and soil innoculants are ready. The only thing that’s not ready is me. I hate March. It’s wet, windy, cold, muddy, and I see no reason to go out in that mess. Coffee’s on and the peas can darn well wait.
