Sow peas

Peas are an easy enough crop to grow, pro­vided cer­tain rou­tines are ob­served. Pre­pare a seedbed in a plot of well-cul­ti­vated ground, with plenty of or­ganic mat­ter worked in dur­ing the win­ter. Set a tight line and open a shal­low trench with the spade blade held al­most flat, spoon­ing the soil care­fully to one side. In the re­sult­ing spade-width trench, sow the pea seeds a cou­ple of inches apart the length and breadth of the trench. Re­place the cov­er­ing soil with the ut­most care. Cover the whole trench with chicken wire well se­cured at the edges to de­ter birds and mice.
