Planting Peas without a drill

Postby Blazed » Sat Aug 08, 2009 6:21 am

Anyone try planting peas but didn't have, or use a drill? I don't have a drill, and am thinking of putting 1/2 acre of peas in by my 2 acres of turnips and rape. Hoping the peas will draw them in and the t/r will hold them. My only "planting tool" is a pull behind a lawnmower dethatcher. I used that to cover my other seeds.
