We soaked the peas for a few hours before planting them.
We broke up the soil and mixed in some of last years compost.
Then we planted the seeds very densely, one inch apart and one inch deep.
It was a lot of fun after the more unpleasant job of clearing the leaves off the strawberries, garlic, swiss chard and garlic.
Thanks Abhi (whose shadow is in the foreground here) for bringing your camera and posting the photos on Flickr.
