These are all edible-podded peas, and the seeds were all part of the big pack of bean seeds that I won last month! There's about a dozen in each pack, so I get to try so many different varieties. I found out that peas don't cross-pollinate since they are self pollinating and usually do so before the flower opens. So I'll be able to save seeds from all of these. Yea!
They all seem to have different heights, too, so I tried to put a tall one next to a short one so I can tell them apart.

It was pretty nasty out most of the day today, so I was happy that we were able to get out there for a while between rain drops. Peas like it cool. It's supposed to be rainy the rest of the week and getting colder again, so they should be happy.
