Growing Peas on a Bamboo Trellis
Last year we grew sweet peas in front of the lattice panels we installed but I had to tie them up. I guess the little tendrils of the peas didn't like the larger size of the lattice slats.
This year, I'm growing sugar peas, shelling peas & the sweet peas again, but have decided to try using a bamboo trellis to get the peas to twine up & around something a little smaller.
I pushed the bamboo stakes (which around about 7 or 8 feet long) into the garden soil at an angle & made a weave fence that supports itself & should be strong enough to hold all the peas (& now pickling cucumbers I just seeded).
I'm curious to see which of the vertical growing supports the peas will choose this year.
The dog will be so happy to have peas again!
I can't wait to see what this area will look like in a month.
