Give it time and the John Lewis Partnership will be anxiously looking over their shoulder. Jessica June 18, 2013 at 7:59 pm - Reply I’ll be reducing my spend if nothing else. I’ve just been watching two woodpecker chicks being fed by their dad!! It’s stormy here and the light is crap.. I will try and get pics tomorrow. Sue T June 18, 2013 at 2:32 pm - Reply MMM but they look so delicious, well done. Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:00 pm - Reply They were .. 🙂 justjilluk June 18, 2013 at 3:25 pm - Reply How many did the mice get?! Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:19 pm - Reply It’s the pigeons now.. a pair are making a nest in the tree right by the raised beds. One stood on a branch this afternoon, twig in beak, eyeing up me and my peas. It was only six feet away and even when I spoke it just sat there, calm as you like, sussing the place out. Vera June 18, 2013 at 3:54 pm - Reply They look good enough to eat! And if that had been me, I would most probably have eaten them before I had got as far as finding my camera to take a photo! Your self control is admirable……. Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:21 pm - Reply The first ones are always special, to be celebrated! Natalie June 18, 2013 at 4:09 pm - Reply But what beautiful peas they are.You just need to market them, say, the way they do Kobe beef. “Eachpod received a daily massage and lullabye, and was only watered with Evian!” $10/pea. 🙂 Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:33 pm - Reply They are certainly organic. No chemicals. Nourished by well rotted compost, ample pure rainwater, mouse, squirrel and deer pee. Natalie June 27, 2013 at 12:24 pm - Reply Oh yummy! ;P Jessica June 27, 2013 at 3:44 pm - Reply Lots of flowers coming now. From five to a glut! haggiz June 18, 2013 at 4:31 pm - Reply Lovely and better than any you’ll find in a supermarket, I probably would have eaten them before I got them back to the house though! Julie x Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:48 pm - Reply It is wonderful to eat them straight off the plant! Makes all the effort worthwhile. Simone June 18, 2013 at 5:31 pm - Reply That’s your 5-a-day!!! Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:51 pm - Reply Absolutely! snowbird June 18, 2013 at 5:50 pm - Reply Oh I say!!!! Mow don’t eat them all at once….lol xxxx Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:54 pm - Reply Less than a mouthful, but a tasty one! Em June 18, 2013 at 6:17 pm - Reply Amazing! Our dwarf beans only have two leaves on them after a month in the ground. This does not bode well for our crop. Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:55 pm - Reply Mine are exactly the same Em, the peas have done OK but the beans are lagging well behind. Denise June 18, 2013 at 6:58 pm - Reply How many air miles? Jessica June 18, 2013 at 8:57 pm - Reply About 30 yards. Less than 5 minutes picking to pan. Denise June 18, 2013 at 9:46 pm - Reply Perfect…you may declare yourself officially carbon neutral! Jessica June 18, 2013 at 10:04 pm - Reply The trouble is, it’s a 30 mile round trip to do the rest of the shopping.. ! Rosie June 18, 2013 at 6:58 pm - Reply Oh, that reminds me of our one cauliflower last year – it measured all of 2cm across its width – no more than a couple of mouthfulls really:) Jessica June 18, 2013 at 9:01 pm - Reply I’ve only tried growing cauliflower once, I remember the variety was called ‘All the Year Round’. I remember because I didn’t even get one! Jo June 18, 2013 at 7:02 pm - Reply It’s a start. Plenty more to come I’ll bet. Jessica June 18, 2013 at 9:03 pm - Reply There are loads of flowers on the plants, so I hope so! Something that seems to have enjoyed the weather anyway. Abby June 18, 2013 at 8:13 pm - Reply Lovely, fresh photo – and I bet they were tasty. We’ve had salad leaves and some strawberries….. I thought (must go to Specsavers….) your post heading was ‘Crap!’ x Jessica June 18, 2013 at 9:07 pm - Reply No strawberries yet! I only have one small pot of them, but I’ve got it under netting to keep those pesky blackbirds off. You had me checking the post title… ! Serendipity June 18, 2013 at 8:17 pm - Reply I bet they tasted better than any supermarket ones imported from goodness knows where! Jessica June 18, 2013 at 9:09 pm - Reply That’s the thing about growing your own isn’t it. I steam them too, to maximise the flavour. Lovely! Sue June 18, 2013 at 8:32 pm - Reply It’s a good start, remembering our Cherry crop last year (one whole Cherry) I am absurdly jealous 🙂 Jessica June 18, 2013 at 9:15 pm - Reply I hope you shared it out fairly.. Sue June 19, 2013 at 11:35 am - Reply Haha, I don’t like cherries much to my Lovely Hubby’s relief, it was used a top a creamy pudding and enjoyed for a second or two by him 🙂 Jessica June 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm - Reply Sometimes one is better than a thousand.. 1secondhandrose June 19, 2013 at 2:23 am - Reply The best is yet to come! Just think of all those peas that’ll be coming along very soon. Jessica June 19, 2013 at 9:48 am - Reply I aim for succession. It’s difficult to find the exact balance between not having enough at any one time, and a glut! Particularly for mange tout because there’s a very fine window when they are just right for picking. Sharon June 19, 2013 at 4:52 am - Reply That looks like my strawberry harvest – 1.5 each. Jessica June 19, 2013 at 9:49 am - Reply Flowers here, but no fruit yet 🙁 Virginia June 19, 2013 at 8:41 am - Reply Yum! Still warm from the sun – the best!! And at least your ‘other half’ didn’t calculate the cost per pea, as a friend of ours used to do as he carefully counted the eggs… and it was him who built a palace for the hens in the first place!! Jessica June 19, 2013 at 9:55 am - Reply Hens have a sentimental value that goes well beyond the humble egg! Totting up the cost per pea would be truly scary… railway sleepers for the beds, irrigation system, nematodes (£40 so far this year) etc etc. Veggies must have sentimental value too! Denise June 19, 2013 at 9:33 am - Reply No unnecessary food waste there then lol! Jessica June 19, 2013 at 10:13 am - Reply Not yet!! 🙂 Wendy June 19, 2013 at 12:15 pm - Reply Lovely – unbeatable fresh veg from your own garden. Even if the first crop isn’t much, it does taste wonderful (like that first strawberry – not long now!) Jessica June 19, 2013 at 10:14 pm - Reply I am watching those strawberries like a hawk. This year it will not be the slugs that get to them first! starproms June 19, 2013 at 4:11 pm - Reply They look beautiful. Well done! Jessica June 19, 2013 at 10:15 pm - Reply Thanks Oma. Every little helps, as they say!! knitsofacto June 19, 2013 at 9:37 pm - Reply Yet will be the operative word there, just you wait and see … and they look delicious! Jessica June 19, 2013 at 10:23 pm - Reply After last year, to be honest, any sort of harvest will be welcome. Thanks Annie. wherethejourneytakesme June 19, 2013 at 11:28 pm - Reply That’s five more than I have got here! Jessica June 20, 2013 at 12:23 pm - Reply I will count my blessings then..! frayed at the edge June 20, 2013 at 8:36 am - Reply If I only ate what is growing in the garden, I would be living on fresh herbs! At times I miss growing veggies, but I don’t have the time with all the sewing I am doing just now! (although friends and family don’t miss having my excess courgette crop forced on them!) Jessica June 20, 2013 at 12:28 pm - Reply Neither of us like courgettes but I gather they can get pretty rampant! Our problem is having only a very small freezer, there’s little room to store any over production. Something we will have to sort out if veggie growing takes off. BadPenny June 20, 2013 at 8:38 am - Reply Wonderful photo… perhaps you could market that ? ! Jessica June 20, 2013 at 12:29 pm - Reply Thanks Penny. I rather like the ‘levitating’ ones… they are taken through the glass kitchen table. elaine June 21, 2013 at 7:59 pm - Reply That is the most beautiful pea photo Jessica June 21, 2013 at 10:04 pm - Reply Thanks Elaine, they were good to eat too!! Sarah June 21, 2013 at 8:45 pm - Reply A great photo I’m sure they tasted good and hopefully the first of many to come! Sarah x Jessica June 21, 2013 at 10:13 pm - Reply Thanks Sarah. Fingers crossed.. woolythymes June 23, 2013 at 8:48 pm - Reply I’ll take 2 1/2 bites of fresh over the supermarket any day!! Jessica June 23, 2013 at 10:02 pm - Reply Quite right!
