Pea Planting Season

3/17/2008 2:13pm

To most people, March 17 is best known for the green of St. Patrick's Day.  But to many gardeners and farmers, the day is equally famous for another kind of green--sweet peas!  Today is a traditional day to begin the planting season.  So while many will be celebrating the day by eating and drinking, there are some of us that will find our joy in the garden.  If the ground is workable--resembling soil more than mud--those itching to get into the garden don't mind this chilly (but sunny!) March day.

And, if it's planting season, harvest season won't be too far behind!  If you don't know where you're going to get your fresh produce this season, why not join Penn's Corner CSA?  You'll get a weekly mix of the best local produce our region has to offer.  The season begins in April, or you can sign up to start in mid June.  Either way, you can rest assured that your local Penn's Corner farmers will be working hard to bring you the freshest food you can buy!
