At the Elephant's Knee

Wall of peas

They made it.  I promised I'd let you know if/when it happened.  The peas grew taller than an elephant's knee--which I  have arbitrarily decreed to be about 3 1/2 feet high.  The peas, indeed, are only two feet away from the eaves of the house!  I'm guessing 6 1/2 feet high.  The experiment of fastening their trellis to the eaves was a success.  Anything growing taller than I needs to be secured from above.

Unzipping the pods for a smooth finish on the palate

Munching crisp, sweet, juicy, flavorful sugar snap pea pods is pretty close to heaven in the great array of Things I get to do today.  Shades of Jolly Green Giants in my garden.
