I've planted the snow pea seeds after they had a good freeze. Now we get to wait and see if they come up. The ground is plenty fertile and most of the other plants have died back now so there's little competition for nutrients. The only possible competitors would be the few carrots still sprouting up and growing.
I ate one of them yesterday with a little brown sugar and butter glaze and it was so much better than the store bought carrots. It had a more flavorful taste to it reminiscent of a sweet potato. That reminds me that I really need to go check the potato patch and see if there's anything to dig up. You never know until you look.
