The Q&A Archives: Fall Snap Peas

Question: I live in south western New Hampshire - is it too late to plant snap peas for fall? I have some seed left over from spring.

Answer: Early to mid-July is generally a good time to sow seeds for a fall harvest. Snap peas usually take about 100 days from seed to harvest, so you may be pushing things by planting now (in late August) since your average first frost is much sooner than then. I think I'd wait and plant in the early spring!
