Peas - Why Bother? - 10 May 2011

This is my third year at growing peas, I think I must be masochistic (3rd Definition) although I have yet to rule out the first 2, but when it comes to peas it is definately number 3!

If you are going to grow peas prepare for war. I have tried planting direct in the ground, I have planted in pots on the windowsill it matters not when I put the buggers in the ground I end up after the birds, mice, catepillars and god knows what else to harvest less than I actually planted. This is clearly the opposite of being self reliant (Unless of course you are a pea!)

I live no where near the coast, we have no near by rock faces so can some one please tell me why there are bloody pidgeons eating my peas. Let alone the two fat cats I have living off me, who seem to think that birds in the garden is a good thing and merely wave at them before tucking into there dried food from Lidl. I forsee a new diet in the offing!

And just for Doggnap my wooden post has sprouted some leaves - they are magic these Bulgarians!
