Garden on the Deck: Rain Damage

Sweet Peas Fattening (above). Taken 7/3/09.
The pea pods unaffected by the recent torrential rain look great. Unfortunately the vines that shot up 2 - 3 feet above the rail were snapped off in the rain storm (see damage below). The plants will survive, but I've lost about 3 feet of pea-stalks, in total. I can't salvage the pods from those stalks, since they're not ready to pick. Oh well. Mother nature can be vicious.
