Alderman or Tall Telephone Peas are climbers, so you could use either a section of fencing stretched between to posts or a "teepee" made of poles lashed together at the top. Keep in mind that they can reach to six feet. Peas are best planted early because they are a cool season crop and are very cold tolerant. You can plant them as early as three or four weeks before the last average spring frost.
