Remember my mystery peas, which I was given by a lovely lady at the North London Organic Gardener's Society?
Well one or two of them have distinct red markings now, which Rebsie at Daughter of the Soil kindly suggested I look out for. This means when they grow up they will be purple-podded peas! I can't wait .. having never grown peas before, its all magical to me.
Its just a little red ring where the leaves join the stem? By the way, the big marbled leaves you can see which the peas are scrambling over belong to the round courgette I am growing this year.. the magnificent foliage was a lovely surprise and I'm looking forward to the fruits!
These veggies are comfortable bedfellows in the cold frame where they are hardening off and gearing themselves up for planting out anyday now.
