Finally Planted Peas

I'm a couple of weeks late but I think our spring is running late, as well. It's hard to get the garden going when your yard is a mud pit. A big thank you to my friend for sharing so many of her heirloom seeds with me. These will be Melting Sugar Snow Peas. Last year I grew some Sugar Snap Peas and discovered that peas don't like to climb up plastic poles. They just fell over onto the ground and I had to go wrap string around the poles in order to get them to behave and climb. This year we'll see if peas like to climb up wood branches. I had a pile of these prunings from my apple tree. Why buy stakes when you have them right under your nose?
