@tpb, we are witnessing crimes against humanity.
Oh, but if you live within range of a deer’s olfactory senses you will see your crop eaten down to the ground in short order. They love peas more than life itself.
They will find your peas! Especially when they begin to bloom, but even without blooms deer will sometimes mow them down.
Best put up an electric fence. But if you shoot one or two of them they’ll leave your pea patch alone for several years. And you might put some venison in the freezer. Best check your state’s laws on that, though.
just be sure to leave the peas’ roots in the ground to break down.
My uncle told me a story about peas and the Great Depression. He said he visited family in N. Louisiana and a relative kept doffing his hat when they drove by a certain field. Uncle Larry eventually asked him why he did that. The reply was, “We grew peas in that field during the Depression. That’s how we ate”, or something similar.
Southern peas love it hot, and you can plant them as late as you need to. Just give them time to make before first frost.
I hope your friend comes through ok.
Yeah, train wrecks in slo mo are hard for me to ignore.
I just hate that folks I know and love are not taking the basic precautions. I live in a pretty rural part of the state, and the numbers are low, but there are cases, and folks are going to restaurants and church meetings and only some are masked. I fear I’ll lose some before this is over.
