Pea Seedlings

My first activity of gardening this year was growing these pea seedlings. I started these indoors and just transplanted them out. This is my first time with peas and I am hoping to get a good harvest :-). I read that peas are cool season crop and would survive well in the early Spring /Spring of Northern California.
Starting these seedlings is fairly easy. For early start I soaked the seeds in a bowl overnight. After I drained water, covered with paper towel and kept at a warm place for sprouting. Then just placed the sprouts in small paper cups with soil for the leaves to come out before I can transplant. I really adore the beautiful tendrils.
