With the hot weather of late the peas shriveled up and died. They have done well with 3.72lb of peas produced. You may remember that we have only about 50% germination on the seeds we planted (17 out of 32) so we could have done much better. Late in the season they were affected with powdery mildew and aphids, but we did not treat because they had only a little time left.
With the peas gone it is time to plant cucumbers in that space. We planted so we would have 2 plants per square. The cucumbers are located here because they can use the same trellis system that the peas used. This allows them to lean out over the lawn. Also, it is the north side of the garden so they do not shade any of the other plants.
We ended up letting the peas go longer than we originally intended because it was a cool spring and they kept producing. The cucumbers will be done long before the frost so there was no rush to get them switched out.
