Growing Wisdom's Dave Epstein, who shoots many of Johnny's videos, sent us photos of his pea harvest. Epstein lives in South Natick, Mass. (Zone 6). He planted 2 Johnny's varieties -- Feisty and Maxigolt under hoophouse low tunnels on March 3.
Epstein, an author, meteorologist, and TV host of "Extreme Gardening" at WCVB in Boston, says his pea harvest is about done. He plans to pull up the vines and replant the rows with beans. Epstein's site -- "Growing Wisdom" -- is well worth a visit for gardening tips and recommendations. It contains a huge library of videos on dozens of gardening topics.
