Peas in SFG

Post  SusNton on 4/3/2013, 6:09 pm

Hi again folks!..As I've stated before, this is my first year SFG..I do have some experience with outdoor TOMs n peppers in containers...I have 3- 2x4x6" beds ATM and 1 empty one ready for Carrots, beets, or maybe transplanting some potted broc or the peas in question...Anyhow(sheesh finally Shocked ) I sowed some peas and they pretty much all sprouted and growing nicely(IMO)..Should I thin em out to the 8/per sq, as recommended, or leave em be? There's ~12-16 per square ATM as you can see from the pic(top)..String is tied to trellis(not shown)...TIA!! Wink

No need to thin they look fantastic! some of those vines may fail and the planting is not terribly thick. I plant mine thicker, no problem.
Congratulations! cheers

I noticed where you are living and wanted to make a suggestion. I have a sister who lives in the Lancaster and I know it can get hot quick. If it does start getting hot for your peas, you can rig up something to give them some shade and keep them a bit cooler. Other people have posted what they use as shade cloth and you can do a search shade cloth and see what has been used. Your garden is beautiful!
