The Sweetpeas have arrived, and even if I do say so myself, have arrived in style!
I can not get enough of them. The fragrance, the colour, the ‘oh my gosh I can’t keep up with you’ production rate. Honestly, I picked the whole lot a few days ago. Every last one, there was not a pea to be seen, sweet or not, and two days later the wigwam is covered again!
And all these from a handful of saved seed. I forgot to harvest the final pods last year and by Autumn when I cleared the garden they had gone dry and crispy, but inside were some perfectly preserved little brown seeds. I kept them in a brown paper bag over Winter and sowed them in early Spring. They romped away and now… well.
Needless to say I’ll be repeating the experiment again this year.
Free seed? Thankyou very much. Free flowers? Thankyou very, very much!
I mean, who wouldn’t want an outdoor desk, with masses of Sweetpeas and a cuppa?
