Sweet peas

My grandfather used to grow the most gorgeous and healthy sweet peas! He had a strip in his own garden at home and he planted one for my mom. They always grew over 6 feet tall and I could smell them on grandma's kitchen table when she cut them for a bouquet. I have decided to plant some where I had my sunflowers last season, then rotate the sunflowers there after the sweet peas dry out next spring. Anyway, that's the plan for now. We've had nice, cool days and nights, but the temps are shooting up to 99 degrees here this weekend, so I'll have to wait to plant the seeds. I bought about 7 packs at (...ugh...) Home Depot because Lowe's didn't have any last week. They will grow up the front fence and face the street, safe from our dogs.
