Here’s the latest harvest of snow peas: these are the Oregon Giant variety which i have planted in the front yard. They are a bush type, which i’ve never tried before, and are quite short compared to the other trellising types (the snap peas i have in the back are now 7 feet tall!) i’ve grown in the past. They’re only 2 feet tall now, and claim to be very heat tolerant: the packet says it will produce all summer…we’ll see if can stand up to a DC summer!
So far so good, this is the second harvest i taken: just be sure to give it plenty of room since it sends out an obscene amount of tendrils, grabbing onto what ever it can. They nearly choked out some peppers i planted next to them, a foot of space should be plenty. Now that the heat is on, i’m letting the sugar snap peas i have in the back go to seed, which i’ll save for next year, and i’ll start some summer cucumbers up that trellis.
