3-14-2011 Started out with soaking peas by placing the peas in a bowl of warm water to soften them up.  This is a must for me before placing them in the ground.  Temperatures are now reaching mid 80’s here in Florida. Soil is dry. We are in bad need of rain. I have planted the peas in the valley instead of raised beds.  I  have a feeling we are in for a Hot Dry Season.  My preference planting in a valley helps me out with watering them.  Getting the water to the root of the plant.  Soaking the base of the plant only.
