It's ready!
Pea Flower
Pea Plants
I think peas really have to be just about the best plants ever. Lacey gave me a couple small Cascadia Bush Snap Peas about a month ago, and I got to pick and eat the first one last night. I love these little plants. This is how awesome they are:
  • They grow quickly.
  • Their vines climb with delightful little grasping tendrils. (I always think vines are wonderful.)
  • You get to build trellises for them (or, in my case, tie crazy arrangements of string and sticks to balcony railings).
  • The flowers are adorable.
  • The peas are delicious!
I mean, really, what more could you want?
