Life Hack for Planting on St. Patrick’s Day Uses a Paper Roll, a High Heel, and a Mattress Frame
Did you know that St. Patrick's Day is the traditional day for planting peas? Our friends in the frozen North can even plant on that day, even if snow is still on the ground! In a video from The Farmer's Almanac, Editor Janice Stillman shows us how to plant peas this season. Her tips use an empty wrapping paper roll, a high heel, and even a mattress frame can be used! The Almanac's Guide says, "Get them in the ground while the soil is still cool, but do not have them sit too long in wet soil. It’s a delicate balance of proper timing and weather conditions." I don't know anyone who grows peas here, so I can't vouch for these tips, but I do know you're going to have to hurry if you want to plant them this season, as they grow best in temperatures below seventy degrees.
