Pea and potato planting day. Lovely morning, not too hot, no rain, poifect! I planted my maincrop today. I am growing “rooster” for the first time. It’s a lovely red all-rounder and usually the one I buy in the shops – so hoping for a good crop. The earlies have already gone in (swift & belle de fountenay) but needed labelling. My pea of choice this year is “petit provence” its a dwarf petit pois type which should give a very early crop of small sweet peas. I shall also be growing “onward”, which is a slightly bigger pea, from later sowings.
My rhubarb bed is in full swing now although for the 2nd year it has produced flower stalks?? Still its very tasty!!
