Six little pea plants growing in a pot.
How many days before their gardener forgets to bring them in and they freeze?
I put them out yesterday to enjoy a light fall rain and some afternoon sun... and remembered them only this morning. Fortunately they don't look any worse for the exposure to near freezing temps.

I plant snow peas in Nov. in Zone 8A in a place that has full sun against a block wall. They grow slowly when it's cold, but perk up during a warm spell. I've had good crops when they got snowed on a couple times and had a few nights of 20F.

Freeze damage looks darker green and these sprouts are fast growing until the pods start to fill with sweet peas

This is my wishing winter doesn't get here till December crop! 😂 Best looking pea plants ever for me.

@Donna_I Haha, I can understand that, and they are SO cute - I think all pea plants are beautiful!

@tinkercreek they are adorable!

Peas are pretty hardy, but of course can't take extended periods of freezing temperatures. Glad they made it through the night. 😉

me too! felt really silly this morning.

@Donna_I bring them in at 4 and take them back out when sun is high and temp above 50°F

@GreenAtheist good advice!

They look very healthy. Some plants can endure lower temperatures better than others. Ii have a similar issue with cactus and succulents where I live. They don't do as well inside but need to come inside for the winter. In past years, I've had to move them in and out several times before thry come in to stay.

That is where I am now - I know they will do better in whatever sun is directly available. Hopefully they stay healthy and I can have peas before it gets really cold.
