Have just noticed a few snow peas coming up.They self seeded.Do you think they will survive the heat of spring / summer? I hope so ,but doubt it very much...as it is going to be 36 degrees later this week. Must have popped up with that little burst of rain the other week.The area is fairly well mulched too. Also, how can I get rid of green shield bugs on tomatoes?

They may grow alright. The mulch will keep the soil temp down a bit and if you have anything that can provide some shade protection when it is in the 30's. Some protection for some of the day, like a shade cloth wall. Keep the water up to them. My peas are producing now and for another week or two - temp today 33.
