Peas were the first thing I remember growing as a child. They seemed to sprout without much trouble and had few pest problems.
I ordered this variety online from Diggers because it was an heirloom variety and the pods can be eaten as well as the peas.
I planted them in a 20cm metre deep container and used some leftover stakes to make a climbing tepee.
That was three weeks ago….
2 weeks ago they sprung into life…
..and with this Indian Summer we’ve been having they are squirming up the stakes.
They look like lovely green butterflies.
