Peas in the rainThe peas get wet in the rain just like everything else. They won’t mind the rain though as they need water to grow those peas!

I threw on some chicken muck pellets not so long back so with the rain they’ll all be breaking down nicely so the plants can use the nutrients.
I’ve got lots of pease in – three rows of different ones, plus the spares I sowed later are growing up pea sticks. They’re easy to grow and we love picking the peas and eating them out on the plot.

The mange tout types are::
Carouby de Maussane – “Tall growing mangetout variety with attractive purple flowers. Large pods up to 11cm long. Good sweet flavour. Height150cm.

Oregon Sugar Pod – “Tall growing mangetout type producing really large broad flat pods. For the sweetest flavour pick when the peas are just forming in the pod. Height 100cm.
