I was looking over my past Grandma's Secret Weapons posts and they really are the most useful tips, Grandma knows what she's talking about.
I love growing peas, I'm drooling just looking at this picture:
I usually plant twice as many pea's as I have room for, as something always munches on the base of my peas and many times, kills the plant. Slugs? Who knows. I have never found the culprit.
Grandma's secret weapon (drum roll)....
Cut up toilet paper rolls around the base. Works like a charm!
