Dreaming of spring...
I know that 2008 isn't even a week underway, but I am starting to develop a slight case of spring fever. I was a bad girl and did not get any new bulbs planted this fall, so I hope some of my old bulbs made it through for another season.
Last year, I planted some sweet peas. Ever since I saw a story on the old (or should I say "vintage") Martha where she visited a sweet pea patch that was insane. The woman had a large plot with a bunch of trellises 7 feet tall and loaded with sweat peas. Amazing.
My luck with them is kind of hit or miss. (These pics are from my small crop last year)I suppose I should breakdown and actually do some research on the best planting conditions. My good friend told me you are supposed to sow the seeds on President's day so that is my plan this year. Where exactly I will plant them is TBA. I still have some (okay, a lot) of clean up left to do. The sun is out today and I guess it is as good of time as any :0)
