Peas thrive on temperatures below 80 degrees F because they are a cool-season crop. In Nevada, gardeners traditionally plant peas on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th), or when soil temperatures rise above 40 degrees F. For more information, read University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Carson City/Storey County Extension Educator JoAnne Skelly’s article “Planting Peas.”
