More Peas

ok, one last attempt at the peas. Worms and moths continue to attack my 'Dakota' shelling peas. I am unable to grow peas from seed. So, I bought four containers of 'Alderman' peas from Sky Nursery. I get the impression that developed veggie starts are a bit more resistant to insects. New-sprouting seeds are just to tender and get eaten or damaged.

As for my other plants...the walla walla onions are coming along nicely. The cippolini onions are growing, but slowly. Also, the spinach and broccoli is coming along. I plan to treat the spinach with some fish fertilizer to promote growth.
