Plant peas and tomato seeds this weekend. Because peas take about two months from seed to harvest, early April is the latest you can plant them and still get good results. Peas like cooler temperatures, so plant them outdoors in the ground or in a container that's about 12 inches deep. I chose edible-pod Burpee 'Super Snappy' Pea this year, based entirely on the claim that they would produce huge peas, something I can't wait to taste. As for those tomato seeds, there's no time to waste. They will need six to eight weeks indoors, in a greenhouse or under plant lights, to be large enough to transplant outdoors around May 8, traditionally the last frost date in this area. Although you could buy sturdy seedlings in May, I prefer this early spring ritual. Maybe it's in my gardening genes, inherited from my paternal grandfather, who always gave us a flat of tomato seedlings. In any case, I'm already salivating, thinking about how tasty they'll be this summer.
