• Give Peas a Chance

    The peas are doing exceptionally well this year

    I’ve done three small successional  sowings of peas this year and they really are doing exceptionally well.  The variety is ‘Jumbo’ from Thompson & Morgan and it is living up to its name with long pods crammed with well-flavoured peas. With just two of us in the household, small sowings are perfect, providing a handful of peas each day to add to the same quantity of broadbeans and French beans.  If I’ve been to the fish shop, I will also add a handful of samphire – highly recommended.  Landlubbers can buy samphire from Waitrose.
