MIND YOUR PEAS AND Q’S! Shelling peas (also called sweet peas or garden peas) have firm and rounded pods that must be removed before eating. The peas are sweet and may be eaten raw or cooked; these are the common peas that are sold shelled and frozen. Shelling peas get starchy and mealy as they get larger or if they are not cooked quickly after they are picked. Snow peas, also known as Chinese peas, are often used in stir-fries. They are flat with very small peas inside; the whole pod is edible, although the tough "strings" along the edges are usually removed before eating. Snow peas are mildly flavored and can be served raw or cooked. Snap peas, also known as sugar snap peas, are a cross between snow peas and garden peas. The whole pod is eaten and has a crunchy texture and very sweet flavor. Snap peas may be eaten raw or cooked. There may be tough "strings" at the seams of the pods that need to be removed before being eaten, but stringless varieties are also now available.

PICKING A RIPE WATERMELON *The curly green tendrils will start to yellow and turn brown. This is a sign that the plant is no longer feeding the watermelons and that the right time to pick a watermelon is at hand. *If you pick up a watermelon and thump it with the palm of your hand, you may find that it makes a hollow sound. Not all ripe watermelons will make this sound. However, if it does make the sound, it is most assuredly ready to harvest. *The surface color of the watermelon will become dull. The underside of the watermelon that was on the ground will also turn light green or yellow if it is time to pick a watermelon. *Read more at https:// www.gardeningknowhow.com/

Planting Untreated Sweet Corn Seed The biggest enemy your sweet corn seed faces in the spring is cool, wet soil. Even if the corn has pink dust coating it, putting that seed into soil below 65 degrees F will slow germination, giving more time for fungal diseases and insects to claim their share of your seed. You’ll get much better results in soil that’s 65-75 degrees F, especially with untreated and organic sweet corn seed. Test your soil temperature about an inch down, be patient, and watch your corn spring to life.
