Allen, I've never had a bit of luck with peas, either. They are pitiful in 
Atlanta whether I try starting them in the late-winter/early-spring or in 
late-summer for a fall crop. The Fall one's succumb to powdery mildew; the 
Spring crop poops out before I get enough peas to justify the work and 
garden space.

Mother's tried growing them in real luck there 
either. Some of the snow pea varieties (Mammoth Grey) will evidently do 
moderately well in the Hill Country, but the sugar snap-types supposedly 
can't adapt.

Hope you guys got some rain last night. Send some up the road to F'burg if 
you do!
