    it’s slowly dieing down now so I left a good half of the bounty on the plant for seeds.

They are strugging a fair bit with the soil conditions, I reckon, thus the small and late harvest. But what I got was great and there is more to come :-)I really like them :-)

Oh good, I didn’t have much luck with them, I tried in summer, which was unusually wet, they grew next to squash (not even sure if they ‘like’ them) and the squash got powdery mildew and then the peas got something too. I only got a couple to eat :(
I’ve got more growing now and they’re looking healthy, no flowers yet though.
