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!
