Beautiful pictures!

Can I ask you a question? Do I need to stake peas? I only have 2 and I have no idea what kind they are because they were sent home with my daughter from preschool. It was cute, they had a different seed in each finger of the glove with a wet cotton ball. They hung them on the window at school and were sent home as seedlings.

I've never grown peas though and I"m not sure what to do.

I just started reading your blog the other day and I love it.

How exciting! I remember growing corn seeds that way as a child.

I would plant them outside in the yard in a sunny spot. There are several types of peas, tall and short. Some are 1 foot tall some are 6 feet tall. The most common garden ones are the shorter ones, about 2 feet tall. Even with the shorter ones it is nice to give them something to climb on. A tree branch works good. Maybe you can find a small branch and if they seem to be outgrowing this later you can add a taller branch.

Make sure they have sun and water them once a day.

Maybe they are sweet peas and will have pretty colored blossoms! They grow about 4-5 feet tall I think. Or maybe they are eating peas with white blossoms. Fun to see! Good luck.
