To pea or not to pea…

Wednesday 15 April, 2015 by Uncle Spike

The early signs of life in the greenhouse were good, and a few months later the crop looks pretty healthy. I’m talking peas by the way…

Last year we lost 90% to red spider, but this year we seem to be unaffected – probably due in part to the climatic differences seen this past winter.

We’ll be munching our first snap peas, lightly steamed of course, this coming weekend, with the garden peas maturing by mid May I think – later than usual still, like everything this season.

But the beauty of the flowers it what gets me…. just look at these; they beat many ornamental flowers  think!

  1. […] on our ‘above soil’ varieties this time. A few times we’ve looked at the peas in the greenhouse, and I’ve remarked on how much better they have been this year – no red spider attack […]

    Peas are one of my favourites. I go to a local farm to pick them when they are in season. Our’s won’t be ready until July. Enjoy your first pea harvest 🙂
