Dang! The Peas Took a Dive

July 15, 2011

The old metal plant stand was doing a tiptop job as a pea trellis until yesterday.

Here’s the plant stand on the left, looking snappy with all those promising pea plants surrounding it.

Even just a few days before, all was looking so promising.  When I took this picture for a status report shot, I didn’t worry about the leaning thing that was going on. 

Here’s a close-up of the plant stand base pulled out of the ground.  No worries – Raoul and I will heave our peas upright, point them closer to our strong fence, and reinforce our plant stand with some rebar stakes.  As a novice veggie gardener, it’s all part of the learning curve.  I’ll use the plant stand for some other more delicate plant when pea season is over.

Live and learn!
