Old-school pea trellis

The peas that I planted in the Fiddlehead beds are starting to grow – those that the deer don’t eat, that is. They’re starting to send out tendrils seeking upward support.

So I took some of the Summersweet branches that I’d piled up neatly back when I did my afternoon of land-clearing, trimmed them up, and planted a little forest.

This is a very old-fashioned method of pea trellising. I think it’s pretty whimsical-looking. I wonder what the neighbors think.

If I’m lucky the tall branches will even help reduce the deers’ snacking.

    After that reaction to fresh eggs, why do you care what the neighbors think?!?! 😆

    Oooh that’s a brilliant idea. I want to try peas again, my last batch couldn’t take the heat.
