I know you printed that July is. A good month to plant peas for a fall harvest. would you like to go out on a limb and suggest a date or a week?

Anytime in July is fine. Some people like to stagger their plantings (called succession planting) so that peas are ripening at slightly different times.

It's important to give germinating seeds and seedlings lots of TLC. Make sure the seed bed stays moist and that the plants get adequate water to cope with high summer temperatures.
