any chain stores selling "sugar ann" or "romano capitano"?
 
Hi, are there any physical stores selling Sugar Ann snap pea seeds or Romano Capitano yellow bean seeds? I under-bought.:oops:

TIA,
Nan

I thought I saw Sugar Ann at either Tractor Supply or Lowe's last weekend.

Great! I can check Lowe's tomorrow. Thanks!

Is it time to start pea and bean seeds in your area, wow, early!

Lowes and Home Depot both have B1G1 seed sales early in the season if you can wait the month out. Keep checking the weekly flyers or their respective websites. For big seeds like beans and peas, they usually have large packs for not much more than the tiny ones.

You might also check independent hardware stores such as Ace Hardware, or small garden centers. They often have a different selection of Burpee seeds or brands such as Olds, Lake Valley, Livingston. Prices are reasonable on the indies and I enjoy the varieties they offer. They are already stocked, even in my zone.

It's nowhere near planting time, Lisa. I'm just trying to get all my seeds in a row. Seeds are in the stores here now, though. I guess I'll have to go on a shopping expedition.

I'll be starting my peas indoors on 2/24 and 3/10 here in Zone 5A. I'll transplant 20 plants each on 3/24 and 4/7, as well as direct sow 20 more each time. I always have intentions to replant in mid-July but never seem to get around to it - usually a little too warm for peas by then anyhow.

I've just always direct-sown my peas. Do you have to harden them off? It would be a big shock to them going from 68F to 30's & 40's outside, wouldn't it?

I probably shouldn't mention this, but Seedsnow.com have Sugar Ann and free shipping :)

I'm gonna be direct sowing my peas this weekend. In past years I did start some inside and transplanted them without much hardening off. To my surprise they took to transplanting well and didn't have any issues going from 68F to High 30s and constant rain outside.

A week or two after they sprout I put them in my unheated sunroom until transplant. Plenty of sunlight and night time temperature are similar to outdoors, day time is warmer than outside.
If it's a nice day out, I might put a tray of them outside on the deck.
Haven't had a transplant issues yet and I get peas early.

Thank you, Linda (you enabler, you!):twisted:

OK, Situation resolved.
