This is the sum total of my Pea-production efforts this year - two pots, containing about a dozen plants all told:
Amazingly, since these are effectively "Rescue Peas" (having originally been intended for eating as peashoots at the age of about 2 weeks), the plants are the healthiest ones I have ever grown. I think maybe it is because of the good ventilation they get. In the past, my peas have been much troubled with powdery mildew, which I know can be exacerbated by poor air circulation.
It won't be a big crop, that's for sure, but I reckon it might score well on the VSR scale. The pots don't take up much space, and the peas are likely to be much nicer than any peas you could buy in a shop, because they can be eaten within minutes of picking.
So here we are - the first pods are visible now!
Despite having decided NOT to grow peas any longer, because of a succession of poor harvests, I think I might change my mind and repeat this method next year.
Two days later....
Those pods certainly grow rapidly!
