I have mentioned in previous posts that my kids have their own little mini pea gardens. I gave them each a pot for them to take care of and nurture. They are growing the Tom Thumb pea variety – a shelling type that grow no more than 18 inches. It’s the perfect variety for a container garden. The peas have been growing great for the kids. But don’t take my word for it, here is a video with my oldest daughter talking about her Tom Thumbs.
A very cute update from my daughter. She is excited about her peas. The Tom Thumbs are doing pretty well. They should be the first pea that flower at my place this year. The kids got the head start as it was easier to get their pots going, then to my soil all tilled and ready to plant.
I have added a few photos below so you can better see how they are growing. I will report back again when they have started to flower.
