Will They Wont They?

The settled pattern of weather continued on Monday except that the morning mist and cloud didn’t clear away until the early afternoon.

Back on the 29 July we sowed a row of very late Onward peas as a bit of an experiment to see if we could manage a very late harvest or if they would succumb to the cooler weather. 
Despite a cool September they’ve not grown too badly and are now starting to produce a few flowers
Perhaps if we’re lucky enough to get a good October we might yet get a few late fresh peas as an tasty treat.

  1. These late crops are always very welcome and this settled weather is perfect for the peas. My late peas fell foul of mildew and pea moth caterpillars, but it is always worth trying a few extra seeds just in case they do well.
