With all the recent rains we've been getting, the plants (including the weeds...!) have all shot up recently. My pea plants in particular have put out a lot of new growth and are getting quite tall now. The little pod in the picture though is from the variety 'Massey', which is an early season pea. This is a dwarf pea and is starting to produce. I harvested a few pods last night and we had some at dinner, they tasted great. Also great to have a little helper who just loves to pod the peas!
The other pea varieties I have in are 'Onward', 'Greenfeast' and 'Wando Select'. I also have the Mange Tout pea ('snow' pea) 'Carouby'. These are all a wee way off eating yet though.
Do you grow peas? Which varieties do you prefer?
