My Granddaughter, Jaelin, planted sugar snap peas on April 3. Only a few came up, so I planted more sugar snap peas in the same place and 8 days later they are poking through the ground. So when Jaelin comes to visit on Mother's Day she will see HER PEAS are growing just fine. The kids love to garden.

Today I put my tree sapplings into the ground around my sugar snap peas. I find that this method is not only FREE, it makes it very easy to pick the peas. Plus they stay clean.Image Enlarger

I just had to laugh that you put saplings for support for  your peas.  I am involved with a group that is growing a colonial garden behind one of our historical homes.  My team (there are several) prepared the soil, planted the peas, and also used freshly pruned apple branches as support.  I commented then that they probable would sprout, and they did.  We have even had some with blossoms.  As an added bonus when the peas are finished,  we will have over 24 new apple trees.  I love working there.

Sunday I picked my first bowl of pea pods and took them over to my Granddaughters, Jaelin, house so she could have them for lunch. We ended up eatting some raw...she likes that the best. The greenhouse is working out great.

I picked more sugarsnap peas today. It really works out great using the sapplings as supports. Hey Luvflowers, my branches didn't sprout. I cut my branches in Winter and they had some time to dry out. The peas seem to be slower growing with the heat. I am trying to make sure they do not dry out too much. Luckily they get part shade. But all the other veggies LOVE THIS HEAT...not me.

A week ago I planted sugar snap peas in 6 packs. Most of them have sprouted and doing well. They will be planted in the GREENHOUSE raised veggie bed as soon as the bush beans are done and pulled out. BUT the bush beans are still producing and I can't wait too long before I need to plant these seedlings. I might have to find another spot for these sugar snaps...but where is the question?Confused I might have to create a new area and put a twig tee pee around them.

I pulled out the bush beans in my raised veggie bed and planted the young sugarsnap peas I started in 6-packs, August 1. If these grow well, I will know that I should do the same thing in Spring…starting with 6-pack plantings. In 50 days I should be harvesting sugarsnap peas, second week in October. This  veggie bed has the greenhouse over it, so the Autumn frosts will not affect these peas. They can take the early frosts. They do better with cooler temps than the hotter weather.

Here it is October 5 and this is my second crop of Super Sugar Snap peas. They like this cooler Wisconsin weather. Yesterday I fed them some WORM CASTINGS. I am hoping that I get a couple of weeks of harvesting them.

2012 Sugar Snap Peas were plant yesterday by my Granddaughter. We used the INNOCULANT again. Hoping this helps with fungus and rot, since it is wet and cool outside during this early Spring. This year I chose not to plant them in the RAISED VEGGIE BED GREENHOUSE. I want to see if they produce better in the natural elements on an iron trellis.Confused I chicken wired the planting so the bunnies and birds don't eat the fresh seedlings when they pop up.

I planted my snow peas on March 17th and they are up about 2".  I tried something new this year, as I always have problems with germination.  I put them in a tupperware between wet paper towels for 3 days before I planted them.  All the seeds were re-hydrated and a few even had the root starting to grow.  Looks like the experiment worked as it seems like most of them have come up!
