Spring Gardening {Peas}

Over the weekend we got the garden ready for spring.  Mr. Hedin prepared the soil by rototilling and amending the soil as needed while I planned out where everything would be planted.  So far, our weather is only ready for pea seeds, but we're creeping closely upon planting everything else!  

We had a maple tree that needed pruning and I rescued the branches to make a trellis for the peas.  Lars and I turned them into 'pea forts' - making a trellis around three sides and leaving the last side open.  The kids can hang out in there eating peas while I weed and deal with the rest of the garden this summer.  We made two {so they won't argue about who gets to sit in it} and planted snap peas to grow up the branches.

Great idea! I am hoping to plant a "sunflower house" with the same idea of having a shady place for the kids to sit

Love this idea! We need to get on our pea planting. We always forget about peas until it's too late!
