Welcome to our video series Homegrown, Homemade. We’ve teamed up with Fine Gardening to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate. In this series with Fine Gardening‘s Danielle Sherry, Danielle shows me how to grow and harvest peas. Then, we move into the kitchen, where I show Danielle how to make the most of her homegrown peas.
Episode Two: How to Care for Pea Plants
Last year, I trellised my peas too late, so they never really took to the trellis. This year, I’ve got a secret weapon: Danielle. When my pea plants are a couple of inches high, she shows up with tools and materials to build our supports, including an ultra-strong trellising system with netting, and we get to work.
