Did I Plant My Wando And Alaska Peas Too Early?

Q: I planted Wando and Alaska peas in my garden this week. But I see on your garden calendar that I am weeks too early. What is your opinion for sandy-soiled Burke County? 

A: I think you are fine. My garden calendar is aimed more at Atlanta gardeners than middle Georgia folks, who enjoy milder winters. For us, mid to late February is great pea planting time.
