I love peas fresh from the garden - whether using the whole pod or the mature shelled peas. But I haven't grown peas in a couple of years because we were avoiding high-carb foods. Well, they are back in my garden since I learned we can still enjoy the immature pods without overly-high carb counts. I sowed 8-10 Dwarf Grey Sugar peas a few days ago - they were from a seed-swap where typically you just get enough seed for a sampling, so that was all the seed there was. And in anticipation that they will germinate and grow well, I've designed a unique support trellis. Old bed spring coils! I scavenged these old rusty springs earlier this month and have had several ideas for using them - a rusty "Spring" wreath, a rain-chain, wind-chimes, etc. But right from the start I had thought they could work as an unusual support for my peas and bring a fun junk-twist to the garden.
This last photo is enhanced to show the coils better. I'll post more photos as the peas start climbing (I have faith they will!).
