Give peas a chance

p5198371peaplantsftf.jpgOur garden is full of all sorts of neat growing things. It’s such an exciting time of year! I’m especially thrilled by how our sugar snap peas are doing. This year I actually got my act together and put them in the ground early enough (on St. Patrick’s Day) to give them a chance before the summer heat arrives. And they are doing great! Here they are last week, with Sylvia’s hand reaching in to “help them find the net” (she likes to guide the tendrils to the support net and see the curly ends latch onto it).

    Lovely! I put peas in too but Reid snuck into the garden and dug them up. Gotta watch that kid! Our tomatoes are doing well though. I can’t wait for summer veggies from our own garden! They are the best!!

    Kiran, are you able to garden year-round where you are?

    I wish I had gotten off my lazy butt and planted my peas in March – now I have nothing and I miss them!

    JessaLu, you might not have any peas growing, but you have plenty of stuff going on in your garden right now, from what I can see on your blog! :)

    Yup, next year we’re planting these suckers earlier.

    Katie, I will remind you and Beth about them on St. Patrick’s Day! :)
