Presprouting Peas

Our sugar snap peas we planted a few weeks ago took a bit to come up and we were a little worried they might have rotted being cold in wet soil.  Well turns out they were just playing games with our hearts because they did come up.  During this time though we began thinking about the 2nd batch of peas we were planting (so they were a little bit apart in harvest time) and went about presprouting them inside.   It worked so good and today they were planted.

Take your pea seeds and dip them in some water to get them wet.
Then take a paper towel and wet it.  Put your peas in the middle of the paper towel and wrap up, like a envelope.
Put in a plastic bag with the top corner vented a little bit.
Leave sit for a few days, soon enough they will sprout. :)

Here they are dry:

Then plant them you regularly would.
