Vegetable of the month: peas

peas

I love peas, but normally don’t have much luck growing them. This  year I planted Oregon peas from West Coast Seeds. Every day I have been harvesting a huge handful of snap peas which we’ve been eating raw with hummus or lightly steamed. I planted them in two big batches so now the first batch is almost gone, the second batch is starting. One to remember for next year….

  1. I love peas — and they have such a beautiful flower… what’s not to love about a plant that is beautiful to look at and delicious. I’m envious… I wonder if they’d grow on a balcony in the city??

      Try sweet peas – you can’t eat them but they are very fragrant. Only thing is that you need to put some string for them to climb on and water them frequently in the hot weather….
