On the 27th February we planted the first out of fourteen blocks of our winter Snow Peas and Sugar Snaps to be ready for first harvest around the beginning of May. Our season will take us all the way up to November. Initial germination of our peas are looking excellent with the recent good consistent weather the region has been experiencing and the full moon which is helping them along. It is vital to produce healthy seedlings in the initial stages of growing peas as this leads to stronger plants. Because our peas are trellis grown and each plant needs to produce fruit for approximately 2 months to be sustainable it is good to see our first plantings coming along so nicely.
Ever wondered why they were named snow peas?
Snow Peas thrive in cooler conditions and are known to be resistant to frost and are even able to grow in snow!
