Peas: Delicious…Dying

June 3, 2011

We harvested our first peas tonight. They were really delicious. Crisp and fresh but also surprisingly sweet. Unfortunately it looks like the pea vines are on their way out. They began to turn brown at the bottom which, according to my internet research, could be due to root rot, a result of insufficient draining. The container they are in is very large and the trellis is tied to the railing so I haven’t been able to move it around to check drainage. There are a lot more baby peas and flowers, but it seems unlikely that they will continue to grow. I guess that’s the nature of gardening; you win some, and you lose some. At least we got six peas! We’ll plant another round in late-July for an early fall harvest.
