Pea Teepee

Pea Teepee

One of our favorite sweet snacks from the garden in the summertime is a handful of fresh, chompy, succulent sugar snap peas. And they’re not just delicious and healthy, they are also easy to grow, you can plant and harvest them twice (spring and late summer) and they’ll even produce accommodations!

To create your own pea teepee, sink a minimum of 6 sticks (the more sticks, the denser the walls) of 4 to 6 feet in length in a circle that’s at least 3 feet in diameter. Tie together opposite sticks at the top. Sow 3-5 seeds around each stick. Water. Wait. As the pea shoots start to grow, wrap them around the stakes until they get the hint. Before long you’ll have an edible hideaway!

We’ve just sown our teepee, but in a few weeks, we’re hoping it looks like this. 🙂

Stay tuned for footage!
