Sugar Snap Peas & Bamboo Teepees-Update

Remember this picture (and post) from May 5th?
Well, look at these babies now, one month later.  

Pretty amazing, huh?  Just yesterday I noticed the first few snap peas, and boy, am I excited!  It still amazes me that this all started with a hard, shriveled up pea seed planted on April 12th. It germinated a week later and 2 months later it is turning into healthy food for my family.  Too. Much. Fun.

Sugar snap peas have been a SNAP to grow–easy PEAsy! {Couldn’t resist}  I didn’t even add more jute up the bamboo teepees for added support until this morning.  I’m sure doing it sooner would have helped support the plants a little better, but they really have been quite happy on their own.  I have barely had to water them, thanks to the rain we have been getting and a soil mix that holds moisture well.
I will definitely be planting another crop of snap peas late this summer for a fall crop.  I’m starting to really like this gardening thing!

    This is a great idea– we will be using it next year– or maybe this fall if I do cool weather planting!

    There’s not much better in life than sweet peas right off the vine. Ours never make it all the way into the house. 🙂 Lisa~
