Pea Trellis

The first trellis in this year’s garden is for the sugar snap pea crop.

In the past the pea crop has been sparse.

In past years the peas have not germinated very well.

The trellis starts with supports driven into the ground.

This year almost every seed has sprouted so Charlie started a bamboo trellis with 1 by 3 supports.

We keep a selection of free bamboo at hand.

Then he selected bamboo from our collection to tie together into A-frame trellises.

Bamboo trellis over the pea square.

Finally he strung up the trellis so the pea tendrils will have something to wrap around.

This trellis is a beauty.

Do you build temporary outdoor structures?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
