Oh no! I did not think this through! When my brother gave me pea seeds I just popped them in the ground in nice little rows. Now, of course, they’re looking for something to hang on to! Silly me, I didn’t think this far ahead. I was just shocked that I actually grew something from seed.
So my poor little peas started clinging to each other for support.
‘Whatever shall we do?’ I wondered, and the Macgyver in me came out.
I used some decorative sticks my neighbour gave me for firewood and wound wire around them to fashion a climbing structure for my little peas to cling to. Each day I’ve been training my peas to cling to the wire, and not each other.
It may look a bit ugly, but it’s working just fine and they’re nearly up to their second layer of wire.
