Well here in Missouri Zone 5b/6, we have already had a couple medium
frosts. Tonight it is going down to 27 but then the ten day forecast
predicts no freezing temps for the next ten days. My snow peas are
about 1.5-2 feet high on the trellis and just loaded with flowers. And
i do mean loaded. Thie is the first time we've done fall peas in recent
years. Do you think we will get any snow peas?
And the broccoli is just beautiful but no heads yet. I have no idea
what to expect lol. Are there any fall gardeners in this zone who can
shed some light for me?
Here in zone 7b/8, I threw some 'finished' sugar-snap vines on the
compost pile -- don't remember exactly when -- and some new plants
started up before frost. I guess they got to be about a foot high. I
didn't pay attention to them during the winter, but they picked right
up in spring and produced quite a few peas. They probably won't
survived in 5b/6, but if you can spare the time and space, you might
try protecting the vines with some piled on straw/leaves and hoping
for the best.
