The snow peas are now about 8 inches tall – stretching up to grab some sun. They’re planted along the south wall of the house, but in the winter, the neighbor’s house blocks lots of the sun. I staggered the planting with the first set about a month before Thanksgiving and another set a few weeks later.
If you’re ever wondering about what to plant when, I found a cool site that generates a planting calendar for you based on your zip code. SproutRobot is a web site that tells you when to plant, and sends you seeds if you’d like. They are based in San Diego (oddly enough – they’re in North Park, too), so there’s an excellent chance that their info will be great for us.
