Spring Planting

Today was a great day to be in the garden. It was a bit cloudy but generally warm. Since it has been unseasonably warm here in the inland northwest we decided to let this guys try their luck outside since they are taking over our starting table. Good luck Sugar Snap Peas! 

We secured them to our newly constructed wigwam so they have plenty of height to climb.
We planted two pea plants per wigwam so we have room to plant four bean plants when they are ready to come outside. I guess this mixing of beans and peas can help with pollination because it attracts a variety of different pollen lovers.
The wigwam with the little pea plants at the base. they look so small in comparison but the wigwam is nearly seven feet tall.

We are hoping for the best. We will have to check them out tomorrow and see if they make it through the night. Fingers crossed

The view from the garden. Everything is turning green. One of my favorite times of year.

Thanks for reading
