I wanted to post some pictures of my Dwarf Grey Sugar Snow Peas. These pictures were taken about 1 month after I planted the seeds. I love getting past that first month, when the place is more established. It's always a little nerve racking waiting for the peas to sprout (if yours aren't sprouting check out my post on why that might be). In the next month, the plants will more than double in size and begin producing delicious pods. At this point I decided to tie some string in between the tomato cages I was using, to help give the peas some more things to grab onto. I support every type of pea, even if it doesn't necessarily need it.
Something I noticed about these peas is that there is a dark brown/reddish color at the joints of the leaves and stem. I haven't seen this color on pea plants before. I have heard that these peas produce some pretty flowers. The next pictures I will post is when the plants are in full bloom.
Are you growing Dwarf Grey Sugar Snow Peas this year? I would love to hear your experience. Leave a comment below.
