Are looking good! Last year was a flop. Tried the early Alaska this year. Very pleased

Your peas appear to be ready to harvest. Central Missouri, my peas are only about a foot tall and just starting to bloom.

I'm using tomato cages for the first time to support the peas. I planted peas around each of the tomato cages. Well see how well it works out.

So far this gardening season it's been a bust. Thinking most of the seed has rotted. It's been alternating between cold and wet, very hot and wet, and starting last night cool and wet for the next week.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yep, Eugene, you are right. Took the pic as I was picking. Next year I will have to give them some support. A lot of them are laid over. Instructions say support or not so I didn't this year. Will probably plant more next year
I actually got lucky this year on planting what with all the bad weather. When I planted, we had a period of couple weeks with no rain, so I took advantage. If I hadn't planted then, I wouldn't have got any in the ground. Then I thought cold was going to get them, but they came through fine
