The Fascinating Growth of Pea Plants

Lucky for me, pea plants are some of the easiest and fastest growing seeds in the world. Whenever I plant my garden, peas are the first plant I see pop out of the ground and remain my most reliable crop throughout the season. As long as you can keep your pea plants well picked, you should expect new pods to keep popping up faster than you can say, “Get your pea sheller ready.”

Children love to plant peas because they don’t have to wait a long time before seeing them stick their heads out of the soil and get bigger and bigger in front of their eyes. You can enjoy some of the majesty of pea growing in this short, time-lapse video I found on Youtube about pea plant development.

The particular pea plant in this video displays a mutant gene that creates two leaves on each node.
