Peas, glorious peas!

Or should that be, peas Sir, can I have some more?

As I mentioned in a previous post, this year I planted peas for the first time and they were, without a doubt, my most successful crop over (our somewhat pathetic attempt at) winter.

This bowl full is the result of what I picked over just two days, last Thursday and Saturday. And although you can't tell from the photo, this is my biggest mixing bowl! So yesterday we had a lovely pea and leek frittata for lunch, yum!

I will definitely be planting peas again next year.

And as planned I did some gardening over the weekend. Mr Homespun gave me a hand in turning over the soil and he received a helping hand from Lucy!



  1. Loving your crop. My sugar snap peas are similar in production potential..... so much I am blanching and freezing them! What else you growing?

  2. Trying fennel for the first time, looks good so far. Other than that just the usual beetroot, silverbeet, chillies, leeks. In a bit of a change over, getting rid of winter crops and preparing for summer ones, love this time of year! xoxo
