Sienna Peas

June 27th, 2018

I’ve always grown ‘Green Arrow’ or ‘Little Marvel’, this year I was low on seed and decided to try ‘Sienna’ from Johnny’s Seeds.

So far, I’m quite impressed. They vines are loaded with flowers and small peas. It looks like they will produce peas about 2 weeks ahead of the ‘Little Marvel’ I have planted in half the row. The proof, of course, will be in the flavor.  I’ll let you know when that time comes, which looks like possibly next week.

Do you grow English peas in the garden? What’s your favorite variety?

    Susy, you are making me so envious with your garden this year. Perhaps I can get ahead of the weeds enough to put in a fall garden. Peas are the best right out of the garden. When I grew some a few years ago, they seldom made it to the house. Eating fresh peas is a fantastic way to snack while gardening, don’t you think?

    Have a great day watching the peas develop in the garden.

    I always grow Green Arrow, I just haven’t found their perfect location since we moved. What I really want is to dedicate an entire bed to them to have enough to freeze – peas are one of my favorite vegetables!

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
