We’re Not Planting Peas Today

I wonder where I got the notion that people planted peas on Palm Sunday?  Carlin peas are eaten on the Sunday prior to Palm Sunday in parts of Northern England, but I can find no reference to planting peas at this point in the liturgical calendar.

Peas like cool weather and they’re a perfect crop for eager Northern gardeners.  It’s still a little too cool for planting today, though.

Planting Palm Sunday peas is pleasant alliteration and pastoral fodder for an afternoon nap.

Take one today!
