Peas Begin Their Climb

I always get excited each season when I see the pea begin to make their climb. When they start grabbing a hold of the string that my wife very carefully tied on the sticks we are using. I wanted to share some of the photos of the peas as they begin their ascent. The tendrils have begun to shoot out of the plants, grabbing a hold of whatever they can. It wasn’t easy to get good, clear shots of the tendrils, but I managed to take a few you can make out.

At the center of the photo you can see a tendril that has wrapped itself around the string.

These are Amish Snap peas. I am always amazed at how the peas just grow once they have gotten a hold of something. You can see that this tendrils has wrapped itself around the string several times.

This photo features my Capucigner peas. This is an heirloom variety featuring purple podded peas. What I find fascinating about this variety is that the tendrils even have a purplish gray color to them.

In this picture is my Golden Sweet Snow peas.  They are performing really well so far, probably my tallest variety at this point.

Another shot with my Golden Sweets. At first I thought I might not have planted them close enough to the string. They are reaching out and grabbing a hold of the string quite nicely. Don't worry it seems that your peas are not growing close enough to the trellis you made for them. They are good at reaching out and finding it!

The variety is this photo is the Magnolia Blossom Tendril Pea. You an easily see why they call it a tendril pea. It is producing an abudant of tendrils. They are all tying together which I think is helping support the plants besides just the string. I imagine these peas are going to be really sturdy.

Another tendril pea - the Spring Blush. This one is going even more crazy with the tendrils - they are everywhere.
