It was raining today but I was determind to sow some peas. Last year we sowed our peas directly into the soil. They germinated okay, if a bit patchy. But to be honest the main problem was that I was a bit lazy and didn’t bother to support them. Consequently, they fell over once they grew tall and the mice had the lion’s share of the crop (damn those mice).
We went pea stick collecting a few weeks ago and brought home some decent twigs to support this year’s crop. We’re also employing the guttering method for seed sowing. We’ll be keeping these lengths of guttering in the cold frame until the peas are at least and inch or so long and then they will go out on the plot complete with pea sticks.
