First lesson learned: Snap peas don’t care for hot weather and need to be watered carefully.
Second lesson learned: A little extra height on pea supports prevents heartbreak.
For the holiday weekend, we had out-of-town family guests, and it was fun to share my garden with someone new. My lovely snaps peas and lettuce looked amazing in the misty 4th of July weather. Fast-forward a couple of days, and when I return from an overnight visit to the San Juan Islands to find my snap peas leaning over en mass, touching their toes.
