Family Tradition: St. Patrick's Day

This is a tradition of my husband's grandpa: planting peas on St. Patrick's Day. Snow, sun, rain, or hail, the peas must get planted!! Nick's grandpa died a few years ago but would be soooo proud to see Nick continuing the tradition and introducing it to a new generation!

Great tradition to pass on - I can remember planting carrots with my grandpa...

I laughed - we don't get to plant anything at all until Memorial day weekend and even then sometimes things are killed by a late frost.

They don't get frosted out? I know peas can go in early, but St. Patty's day seems really early! Perhaps that is just the Michigan in me talking...
