The Great Pea Collaspe of 2010

One of the things I love the most about Virginia are the crazy rain storms that start to make their way through this time of year.  Two weeks ago or so we had the first one of them come through, and it was a doosy.  The skys blackened up, the winds howled, and the thunder just rolled back and forth between the mountains.  It was awesome!

Or so I thought until I made it home.  By the time I made it back to the L. abode, the rain had subsided so I made may way back to the garden to see what was new.  What I encountered was all of our beautiful peas sidways on the ground.  When we first put the trellises us, we never once considered what high winds might do to them. 

We’ve managed to get them somewhat upright again, but I was still worried that they wouldn’t produce.  Tonight, I was pleasantly proven wrong 🙂
