After checking my winter sown containers this weekend for sprouts, I noticed that my peas haven’t started to sprout yet.

I would have expected at least a few of them to sprout by now.
I’m not sure what’s going on, I think they may have been too far in the sun and were baked.
Or perhaps they don’t like this cold, wet weather and decided to rot instead. (I have read that bean and pea seeds will rot if winter sown to early)
Whatever the reason… to be sure I have peas this spring, I decided to sow the rest of my pea seeds.
I was saving those seeds for a second crop later this summer, I guess now I’ll have to buy more seeds.
I thought I was done with winter sowing, but I sowed 6 more containers (all peas), that brings my total up to 105…
- ‘Little Marvel’
- Mammoth Melting Sugar Pea
- Sugar Snap Peas
Plus, 10 more containers have started to sprout..

- Summer Savory
- Forget Me Not
- Petunia Mix
- Poppy (orange)
- Pole Beans
- Jiminez Bean
- Patty Pan Squash
- Butternut Squash
- Blue Lake Pole Bean
- Deep Blue Morning Glory
- Lima Bean
That brings my total of sprouting containers up to 36!

I’m happy with the number of sprouting containers I have since it’s been so cold and wet this spring.
But I’m still not at 50% of my winter sown containers sprouting. It’s definitely a late spring.
The weather is supposed to warm up, so hopefully that means I’ll start to see more containers sprouting like crazy!!

I haven’t heard from any of you in a while, everyone must be busy with their spring chores.
Hey all you fellow winter sowers, what’s the status of your sprouts??
