Growing Dwarf Grey Sugar Snow Peas – 1 Month After Planting

(Last Updated On: April 30, 2014)

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.

  1. I’m just starting my own garden this year, and dwarf sugar peas are one of my experiments. Thank you for taking the time to write about and photograph yours, this has been helpful!

  2. I am glad to hear you found the info and pictures to be helpful. I will be adding more photos of what I am growing this year as the season progresses.

  3. Having never planted any sort of peas before, I ran into huge problems when it suddenly occurred to me – wonder of wonders! – that I actually needed to support them. I know… I should’ve known… oops. I actually ended up constructing a last-minute support using a picture frame. Mine won’t look even half as good as yours, but it’s something, right? I can’t wait to see what yours look like when they come into bloom!!! I love that you planted them in a circle. Very aesthetically pleasing!
