Pea tendrils holding onto the trellis

My peas have gradually found the trellises and begun climbing them.  I was expecting to pick peas on May 15th, so we’ll see if that dream comes true.

I really wish I knew how peas can do this

  1. Beautiful! My peas are climbing too, hope it stays cool enough for them to make peas. I have a few blossoms.

    Your tendril photographs are beautiful. I just love to watch that sort of action: pole beans and cucumbers are wonderful too.


    • This is my best year for pea vines ever, thanks to the very early spring. But I have no idea if they’ll flower or produce pods for me. We’re scheduled for a very warm week ahead.


  2. I’m glad to hear someone’s peas are doing well. We’ve never had much luck growing them here. BTW: Great photographs!


    • I usually try peas but I don’t even know why. I get at most a small salad bowl full of pods. I’m quite hopeful for a few more than that this year with our amazingly early spring.


  3. We’re supposedly going to get frost tonight. Sigh…. it’s a good thing we have lots of tarps to cover things with. Spring is still about two weeks out for us.

    These pea tendrils are simply beautiful. I love these photos. Spring is actually quite early for those of us who live on the west coast this year.


    • Thank you! This 8 year old camera is still doing very well for me. I honestly don’t think a person can take handheld shots (without tripod) at much higher than 2 or 3 megapixels without blurring the image at the highest magnification.
