The peas are coming on nicely now and over the next two weeks I am expecting a glut of Purple Podded peas,
but for now I have to content myself with snow peas.
These are Oregon snow peas and after giving them another chance this year I have decided that they're just not for me. They aren't as sweet as Mammoth Melting, the peas develop very quickly and if you're not quick to pick them, you end up with podded peas instead of snow peas.
The Blue Bantam and Early Crop Massey (both podded peas) are doing OK, not producing massive amounts, but enough.
A combination of Blue Bantam and Early Crop Massey.
The Telephone pea vines are covered in flowers and pea pods and should give a reasonable harvest and I'm hoping the Sugar snaps will too.
My favourite pea by far this year is not even of the edible variety, but their fragrance, and their lovely colours more than make up for it.
I didn't know that sweet peas came in white I will definitely be saving seeds for next year.
My biggest mistake, and one I won't be repeating next year, was planting the rows of peas too close together. They are now all tangled together and trying to separate them is a pain.
