Food, food, food

Today's gardening tasks:
Planted Wando Peas directly in the garden (about 100) near the strawberry plants and some also near the onions (not a great idea, but we had leftover and no other great place to put them)
Started seed indoors:
6 Jubilee Tomato (found an old seed pack I wanted to use up)
9 Relleno Chile
5 Ring o' fire Chile
4 Hidalgo Chile
9 Espanola Chile
9 Spacemaster Cucumber
9 Prescott Fond Blanc Melons
9 Cal Wonder bell pepper

Inquiring minds want to know...Are you using supports for your peas?

Well.....our original plan was to build little archways running east to west between beds for all our beans and peas. That keeps them from shading other plants for the most part, and it's easy to walk under the arch and pick beans from underneath (we've done this with chicken wire in the past). Then I found out the peas only grow to 2-3 feet tall (we've never grown them before). I've read if you give them twine to climb it's easier to pick them, so I'm planning to put stakes in the ground and run a few lines of twine between them for the plants to run along. No idea if that'll work or not though! ;-)
