Give Peas a Chance30th June 2011 • General • Stephanie Donaldson
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.
