Depends on what you are planting. Brassica - anytime next 6 weeks; Cereal grain - mid Sept thru Oct. Regardless of what/when you plant, it should be right in front of good rain.

No experience with those peas, but never have been able to get Australian Winter Peas over 2" high before being wiped out.

Same here every time I've tried any variety of Winter Pea. I always plant a mix but the deer seem to focus on nothing else but the peas until they are eaten down to the dirt. The remainder of the plants in the plot will always make it to Spring with growth to spare. The plot is 2 1/2 acres. I don't know if I tried a pure Winter Pea stand if some would make it to maturity or not. At the cost of pea seeds it could be an expensive failure leaving me with no Winter plot at all except for the strip of Imperial Clover down the center.
