Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to grow peas from a seed. Now peas are a great addition to your vegetable garden and they're really easy to grow. When you start them from a seed it's always good to buy the seeds from a reputable dealer and there's a lot of different seed companies out there. Now these peas look just like dried up peas, but they will grow. Now peas will not really germinate 'till it's about fifty to sixty degrees. So if you start them too early they're not going to do much. So you want to start them when it warms up a little bit outside. Now you can put them right into the soil or right into a container and they are just a vine; so they have to have something to grow onto and they don't take a lot of space. So I always recommend even in a small container, planting ten or twelve seeds because you want a lot of plants and not everyone always germinates. So what I do is just set those into the container and kind of balance them out so that there's maybe just a few inches in between all of them and then I take other soil and then just cover it up about one to two inches. I like to cover them up so that they'll grow. Now the trick is you want to mist that; but you don't want just to put a lot of pressure 'cause the seeds or the, come right out. And you want to set it on a platter or somewhere where the water is going to soak back up and the trick with the container with peas is, you want it wet but not just saggy wet so things will rot and yet you don't want it too dry either. And as long as you give that peas something to grab onto you will have your own vegetable garden in a container.
