It may have been a grey day for green thumbs but about 30 folks gathered to "Give Peas a Chance" at the Franklin Community Garden on Saturday. Some had plots in the garden some gardened in their own space. All came together to hear Chris Clay share some tips on peas and other things to plant early.
There was a line briefly to get peas
One plot has been stringed off in grid fashion to help with their planting this year
Amy Acevedo watched as Leo O'Brien planted his peas in a starter cup
Jack Barry observes as Chris sinks his round of green wire mesh as a support for the peas
As Chris explains, his son Gabe plants the peas around the wire mesh
Jack lends a hand as Chris ties off the bamboo sticks in a teepee shape which is another way to support your peas
This was the first of a series of sessions to talk about gardening and share gardening tips
