Sugar Snap Peas

My sugar snap peas, started from seed on November 8.

It looks like all the seeds have sent mercenary shoots to the surface, searching for sunlight. All have successfully completely the first test of survival. Soon, they will be shooting out arms, looking for a place to climb.

The beauty of "climbers" is that they can grow well even based out of a very small foot print. With a good trellis and some sunshine, you can easily grow climbers almost year-round in the southwest USA. Climbers, like sugar snap peas, are great candidates for urban gardening!
