More Peas Please!!

Despite the cool weather and the rain, the pea plants seem to be thriving.  These were transplanted out as starters.  The seeds I direct sowed did not have a good germination rate.  Okay, I lie.  They may have germinated but I noticed the slugs had nibbled on the tender shoots.  I'm convinced they ate all the shoots that appeared.  Of the snap peas and shelling peas I planted, only 1 or 2 plants of each grew.  Darn slugs!  By the time I noticed, it was too late.  *sigh*  Maybe I'll have shelling peas for fall.  
As you can see, the peas have started to flower.  When I looked closely, I noticed some pea pods.  Hooray!  I can't wait!
