A big fat crop of Sweet Peas went into the greenhouse yesterday. It’s amazing how quickly the entire space was transformed once the posts, paths and plants were in.
I haven’t grown a crop of the fragrant beauties in there in 3 years. Remembering back, it was our most abundant, long stemmed harvest to date.
With the wind protection and early start the vines grew at an insane rate. In no time they clung onto the fans that are 9ft. up on the ceiling (pictured below)!
It’s still a bit too cold outside to plant the others, so for now they are safely tucked in the seed greenhouse with all of their spring friends like bachelor buttons, queen anne’s lace, bells of Ireland, snapdragons and giant pansies.
It sure feels good to get moving, get my hands in the dirt and have so much fresh air. Yeah for spring!
I still can’t believe these teeny, tiny seedling will soon look like this!
