David K my sweet peas are getting tendrils I have took these off as they are not big enough yet, they have about 3 sets of leaves now 3rd ones right next to the top

Is that about ready to pinch out now?  why are they getting tendrils so soon?

Here you go Weyplotter

This pic below is the peach tree I have had a few years from a 2 year old and got a peach from last year, its a container area now it has a nice stem that just goes over the plastic green house when up

You can just see the small peach tree to the right of the pic with the labels on
