Blue Peas!

How I love them. Blue Podded Capucyner Peas. Funky!
Enough for a lovely risotto.

My only regret - that the peas inside aren't blue, too. Wouldn't that be something?!

How Odd! I've never seen blue peas!

Looks like I'll have to give there a go this winter. How come you are picking them now, I'd have thought they would have succumbed to the heat a long time ago.

Stewart, I had started a few batches of peas quite a while ago, but they were decimated by ducks, slugs, snails, anything else that eats my peas.... And this lot is the last one I sowed. Don't ask when that was, I can't remember. (I didn't write it down.) We haven't had a heat wave yet, so that's why I can eat my peas now.

Yes, they are pretty. I hope to save a few seeds (if I can refrain from scoffing them) to have enough to share with others next season. I'll see.

WOW I have never seen blue peas before what a curiosity and a novel way to get children interested.Oh I have got to find me some of those.
