trellis

its interesting to see how different varieties of the same species are growing under the same conditions. theres not much variation among the fava plants (they are all doing pretty well) but the blue peas i got from baker creek exploded out of the ground with 95%+ germination and are continuing to grow at an astonishing rate. the other varieties of peas – not so much. a variety of pea called lincoln that i got from baker creek had about 50% germination and those that did germinate don’t seem to want to grow. for the peas that are doing well i needed to get a trellis in before the plants got too big. i picked up some fence-like material from home depot and cut it down to fit each bed which i think will do the trick nicely.

some of the peas started to grab on to the trellis within an hour of putting it in. amazing.
