Carol, they look absolutely GREAT.  I bet the package I got was marked wrong.  Mine only got about 18 " or so.  ENJOY my friend.

Lark, I didn't explain myself well.  My Sugar Daddy peas are about 20 - 24" tall and I have not been able to try them yet.  The peas in the picture are from a package labeled Sugar Snap and are a combination of plump pea pods and snow peas.  I had to put up another tier of twine to try to keep them upright.  I've had several good pickings and have been able to freeze a few for winter. Yay!

How can you pick your peas and NOT eat any while picking???  I have to eat at least a couple.  Sugar Snap are a family favorite.

I do nibble a couple while picking but lately I've been picking after supper when it has cooled down outside; I'm not very hungry then.  I'm including photos of my Sugar Daddy peas that I just took.  They should be a good size for picking in a couple days.  I did try one of  the larger ones (not much more than an inch) and I was still chewing fibers several minutes later.  Doesn't look good that mine will be any better than yours.  I was surprised to see they had grown to about 30 - 36".  I think I'll try Cascadia next year.z1.JPGImage Enlargerz2.JPGImage Enlarger

Your garden looks so LUSH and healthy.  My Fall crop is about 3" high.  Hoping to get a late harvest and not an early FREEZE.  I planted Sugar Snap this time.  Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, so wet in the bog area.  BUT pots still dry out daily.  Have a good day my friend.

This gardening season I am trying to be better at succession planting.  Ten days ago I started Sugar Snap Peas.  They are now a couple inches high.  Yesterday, after a rain, I stuck in 6-7' sapplings to support the vines.  I purposely planted the peas on the south side of the raised side of the raised bed so the won't shade out my peppers until late afternoon.  Wish me luck growing this beauties.  I have never had success with a Fall crop.  Either they get too hot while growing during the late Summer or we get an early freeze and they are goners.  Maybe this will be the year I am successful.  They are certainly getting enough water.
