Pea Obsession

I did not realise how many varieties of peas I had until I started planting! I have run out of trays so will do two plantings. This is the first lot, will do the next when these are ready to be transplanted.

I have decided to get them all going so I can have the pleasure of comparison. At the end of the day peas are great to freeze, have always been a staple on our dinner plate and what’s the point of them staying in a box in the cupboard.

However there is a little problem – SPACE! I really hope the allotment I am next in line for comes through very very soon. If not I have got some (far from attractive) flower boxes which will do the trick.
