Plant your peas

A look at your moon planting guide will tell you that it's a great day to sow peas, amongst other things.

So I went and built a little frame for the peas to climb up, when they start growing. Just hammer in 2 stakes at either end and then tie stalks of Bronze Fennel (which needs cutting back every autumn/winter) in-between.

The soil in this bed is really good, so I didn't have to do much. Just make little holes and bung in a pea. Cover, give it a little pep talk, and hope the snails don't attack as soon as the seedlings poke their little heads out of the soil.

I sowed Blue Podded Capucyner Peas in this patch, which I received from a lovely gardening friend.
