Pea 'Pickin'

Gary was pea 'pickin' all these sugar snap peas this morning. He was sure to tell me there are many more baby peas coming on. I've been catering to these peas due to the hot weather and late season planting.

Sugar snap peas take a lot of water since they are shallow rooted. I've done my best to shade the bulk of them with some coolaroo fabric I happened to have left over from my lavender farm days. As you can see the pea stalks are over the six foot trellis and are now sturdy enough to withstand just about any type of summer wind or rain storm barrage.

We gave our neighbors this batch of peas because we'd already planned on having creamers or lady cream peas obtained from the weekend farmer's market. We are in pea heaven this week. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Yum. Peas are another of the vegetables which I prefer raw. And fresh peas are a sweet delight.

  2. Hi Sue, thanks, they are so delicious, amazed I've kept them alive.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
