Do pea plants normally have a stem this thick, the crop I planted last year was spindly by comparison, or should I be happy they can grow 3'tall unsupported.

I can not answer your question since how this is my first year and also my first year trying to grow them and it ain't working since how my watermelon was to close.
Those are nice. They look very healthy compared.

I can not wait until next year.

I sit in my vegetable garden so that I can see them grow.

Those peas are perfect. So you have got it spot on by the look of it. Well done. They're flowering well too. What type are they?

You are soo lucky...
My peas keeeeeeeeep getting eaten...
*and I swear by a woodchuck, they just eat the
tender tops, grrrrrr, and this is the 3rd time.*

But my stems are thicker too...
but look healthy..
*when they grow back from being eaten that is*

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.
