I am going on my third year of gardening and have never had much luck with peas. Honestly, I don't know what kind I planted the first year, but last year I did the Super Sugar Snap. I get about half of them to germinate and though it's a poor percentage, the ones that do germinate look great. But then, at about 6-12", they just kind of dry up and die. Last year I got 2-3 pods off of the 48 seeds I planted. I've been told they are simple to grow, so I'm wondering what I'm missing. I planted them on April 25th, protected them from the later frosts we got (avg last frost date is 5/15 around here - Indiana) and then re-seeded about half of them on 5/12. I'm planning on trying again this year...any advice?
