I'm back from vacation (the kids were on spring break) and was very happy to see that the snow peas are up. They're just an inch or two high, but they look good. We were supposed to have rain today, but it's waiting, waiting. (I'm probably the only person in Boston hoping for rain.) A little rain will help a lot. Right now we have four 10-foot blocks of peas. Once they're done, we can replace them with squash or melons.
The plants are still plugging away in the greenhouse. The harsh environment has been tough on them, but I think the plants will come around once they get in the ground. We'll have a planting day on May 8th, for some of the plants (beans and chard). The tomatoes and peppers and squash will have to wait until later in May.
