This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

corn stalks for pea support

peas

I decided to go with the pea trellis material that was lying around my garden - last year's popcorn stalks.

Love that idea! I tried growing my peas near my corn, but the timing didn't work out too well!

Hey I like your use of the cornstalks for the peas! You are further along in the beginning of your season than I am, here in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have a gardening blog too that I started in January-check it out-would love to share veggie info with you..

That's excellent! My mom does the same thing for her peas too - she uses stuff from around her garden. She's always pulling dead branches off trees and saving anything long and sturdy from her garden.

i made tepees for my pees this year. I didn't realize you could plant peas so close together though! That's great!

Oh what a brilliant idea! and I could kick myself because I kept my corn stalks just for a bit of Winter interest on the patch, and cut them down and threw them out just last week. Grrrr!
