Question by dogwalker: starting starter veggies tomato’s & snap peas?
I have a home in northern vermont. This is my 1st year trying to start a veggie garden. I started my plants too early and my sugar snap peas are growing like weeds. I staked them but I realized that I started them too early. I won’t be able to plant them until probally late May. How should I take care of them unitl then. I also planted cherry tomatos that are starting to grow. I do have a lot more seeds to plant but am going to wait until late April to start them. Do you think this is the right time.

If I am understanding you correctly, you have the peas indoors. I have grown thousands of seedlings and have also made this mistake. Since you have staked them, let nature take its course. You may be getting cherry tomatoes before you plant them outside. Don’t germinate your other seeds until late April. You live in a colder climate, and you main goal is for the air and ground temperatures to be warm enough to support the root systems. You can always germinate more peas at the end of April.
A good technique to healthy germination is to purchase a light weight potting soil, no bark. Add some vermiculite and humus to the soil. Add hot water to the soil mixture. This is a wonderful way to get the root system started. Make sure the seeds are in their proper environment. Some seeds germinate better in darkness and some in light. Keep them watered, but don’t over water. I hope this has helped some. I will link you to the spices and herb section of my website. There is a page on growing herbs from seeds. Vegetables are done the same way. I will also link you to the site map, as this page has everything that is on the website. Browse through and see if you can find any other information that may be useful to you. Good luck to you and have a great day!
You could also put your cherry tomato plant into a larger container, once the roots get established. You could have this particular plant as an indoor or patio plant when it warms up.
