‘Prolific’ is in the eye of the beholder, no doubt. However, by no definition would the pea crop this year be described as such.
I managed three pickings, which makes me wish I’d stuck with mange-tout. They were quick to turn to peas and kept flowering for what seemed like months.
Anyway, the pea plants have been removed from their bed to make way for the butternut squash as they spread – hopefully, not more wishful thinking! And the front garden has also provided an amount of biomass after a foray out there this afternoon to cut down poppies and other flowers which have finished.
