Peas Between the Goal Posts
Suddenly they were off and climbing way too high! The peas have been a success this year; that has not always been the case. These are Peas Sugar Snap TM (edible Pod) from a Canadian company that's been around since 1896 (although owned since 2006 by Jiffy). www.mckenzieseeds.com
When McKenzie said they were a "very tall plant and may require support"..did they know the Captain would eventually have to raise the goal posts as in the above photo, and run wire from side to side, and just to be sure, he had to measure the tallest...9' he was pleased to relate))).
Now how on earth can we possibly pick those without a step ladder? So here's a question and replies appreciated.....I'm thinking if the peas were topped at about six feet, wouldn't the radials grow more and produce just as much as an impossible to pick nine feet. Makes sense to me and none of this goal post business!!
By the way, this variety of sugar snap pea is delicious and prolific.
