We came back from our holiday and were pleased to see the peas up. We planted these September 23rd - so these photos were taken 3 weeks later on 13th October.
I checked my blog from last year and it seems I prepared the ground for the peas on Sept 14 but then didn't sow the seeds until Oct 8 and then around mid-Nov they were half way up the frame. We'll see if getting the seeds in a few weeks earlier makes any difference.
There are a couple of little gaps in the row but nothing really dramatic. We were away for 9 days so there would have been no water to them in that period, except for rainfall :-) of course!
