What a difference 2 weeks can make! At 7 weeks, the peas are higher than the stakes I put up for them. That is ok though because the plants are strong enough at this point and they are grabbing on to each other at the top. The peas have begun flowering now, so that means it won't be long now until the first harvest takes places. Usually seems to takes a little over a week or so from the flowers blooming to having the first peas ready to harvest. There were some brown leaves at the bottom, but not too many of them. At this point, I was not concerned about that. It has been a warmer spring than last year, so I don't think the plants are going to last as long, as peas can't take the heat. Make sure to keep the plants moist to keep them cool and producing more flowers and thus more snap peas.
