Sweet Pea Gardens

Found via Maine Gardener: Sweet Pea Gardens. They only sell seeds and books via mail order, but if you’re going to be in the area, they sell lots more than just sweet peas (though that’s a very good start).

I’ve always wanted to grow sweet peas along the chicken fence. I did try one year but they didn’t do much. I think I need to amend the soil significantly before they will do well, and I’ll have to dig all the poet’s narcissus out of that area before I can amend. Yeah, one of these years . . . it’s that kind of a project. This website has a lot of specific cultural information, so, if like me, you’ve had trouble, give this site a read before you give up.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

Thanks for your advice about the problem with my blog. I’m still looking for a solution, but I’ve got a few more inklings about what is going wrong. Thanks again for your help!
