so the weather we've been having is NOT normal right?
I just moved to Pittsburgh a year ago and I tried growing sweet peas (lathyrus odoratus). I used to live in Baltimore and was able to usually get these guys to start flowering around Early-Mid may. So I had about a month before they crumped under hot weather.
This year, I planted my sweet peas in pots out in march. They are just coming into bloom now. I'm thinking I have a week and the 90 degree weather is just upon us.
Someone please tell me that this is not normal and that normally we have a more temperate period. I LIVE for sweet peas.
