Trellises for peas.

Now the peas have popped out of the ground and established themselves we are making them trellises.

We make them trellises to climb up as they grow and to make it easier for us to weed between them and then to harvest from them.

We make our trellises from odd and ends we find around our farm.

We have some old chook fencing (first photo) and some farm gates. Usually farm gates are expensive but when we first moved here the paddocks were divided into horse paddocks with these gates between them, so we have many to use for trellising.

Grow well peas!

You make us realise and appreciate just how much work there is in farming.
