In a Jam Jar on Monday

A quick posy to take to a friend, all popped into a small jam jar for travelling in the car.

I also took a (re-used) bag of pea-shoots with a few nasturtium flowers

The pea shoots were grown from a cheap bag of Marrowfat Peas that I bought at least 3 years ago. I started by sowing them in rows (22. July), but I didn’t know if they would germinate so I also thickly scattered some

The peas all came up and have been fantastic. I have had loads to give away. Two of my grandchildren who are quite fussy eaters, especially where vegetables are concerned, just love to pick and eat as they go past. I take them little bags of pea shoots when I go to their house and they sit and munch their way through as if they are eating a bag of crisps!

I’m cheering on the inside.

Next year, I will scatter sow them but not quite so thickly.

Last week I pulled out a few plants and have sown a row of Wild Rocket, which is just beginning to peep through.
