  1. Just making sure I understand this. I can leave them in the container (5 gallon) outside, as is and NOT have to transplant into a bed outside?? Thanks for your help.

  2. I mix the peas up. But they are your standard selections from the big stores and typically Burpee seeds. Yes I add a tomato cage in the container or put in some bamboo sticks and make them a teepee.

  3. What kind of peas are you using, and do you provide something for them to climb as they grow?

  4. Excellent!!

  5. Hi. I don’t inoculate my peas. I have not had an issue with them growing. And thanks for the speaker comment! Peas will grow fine as is. If you notice a problem with your crops, I would consider inoculating in response to an issue. Maybe others can chime in with their thoughts. Good luck in 2013.

  6. Were the peas already innoculated? Or is innoculating not necessary? I live in North Texas.
    Thanks for the videos, they are great and you are a very good speaker!

    Well because i want to plant them earlier so i can get fruit earlier. I planted some yesterday, do you think they will grow and get bigger till i put them outside???

  8. Yes but they really need to be started in larger containers like 3 inches. They are big seeds and grow to fast for the cells. However, they like warm weather and warm soil… so typically they can just be put in the ground. Or started in cups outdoors. There isn’t a need to start them inside.

    Can you start melons, squash, gourds, etc…… Indoors???

  10. Thanks! Please spread the word.

  11. Love your videos! Thanks for sharing. :)

  12. Well am in US Maryland by Baltimore City. Nights are freezing here still but days get to 35 -45.

  13. what latitude are you at cause we have frost all day and nite
    we live near toronto so when would we start this

  14. Yes I use tomato cages. I also use bamboo poles thin 5 feet I got at Home Depot.

  15. Thanks for watching. Please pass them on. You can grow greens in the buckets. Home Depot and Lowes has them for under $4. That is the best place to get them. Congrats on the indoor lights.

  16. nice video and good idea! don’t you have to support them too? how would you do that in a bucket?

  17. Yeah, its kind of like an unheated sunroom attached to my house, but doesnt get to freezing either, that gets decent sun about 5-6 hours per day right now in the winter. So far each of the 4 plants are just getting their 2nd and 3rd pea pod per plant. Not a huge amount so far, but they just started flowering a couple of weeks ago. These will probably die off before the spring summer, but it was a fun little experiment and my first time growing peas in containers.

  18. Thats I okay. I laughed making the video because its good to be five. Just using peas. Childish yet funny. Thats why I like the 3 Stooges.

  19. Hey. Full growth indoors? I havent done that. Eventually miine will be outside. How was the crop?

  20. Time for the cool season crops! Good Luck SSF.

  21. I’m sorry, but I just had to laugh when you said pea bucket…because apparently I’m 5 years old :p

  22. Cool! I was wondering when I could start some. Neat!

  23. I am doing the same thing, and just have them growing up some bamboo stakes I have inserted into the pot with them. Just now getting my first indoor winter pea harvest :)
