Growing local

Wow. I have what appears to be a decent crop of snow peas with many more flowers still on the vines. Lesson: more is best. I think I am going to do a bit more mass planting so that I get some decent crops instead of one or two of things.

It takes some time to sort out what you want to grow :) but it's a heap of fun getting there. There are so many varieties of veg to try.

I'm starting to think the best bet is to plant a few crops for each seasons - just make sure those ones are top notch.

Both Lissa and I have seeds for next winter.

No, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I will now!

Have you tried Sugar Snap Peas? The climbers give months of sweet crunchy pods, top and tail is all the prep apart from a rinse.
