I cut down all the old dried pea shoots and leaves and we were trying to figure out what to grow in that container.... and then, suddenly, NEW peas! I guess the weather cooled down enough for them to come back? Who knows... we'll let these go and see how they do. Randomly, morning glories also started to grow out of the pea planter, so they will be growing alongside the peas. I hope that they, along with the marigolds in the lower zucchini planter will be able to provide the peas a bit more shade.
