 green arrow shell peas
 green arrow shell pea harvest
 green arrow shell peas. i saved the best peas grown from organic peas purchased  several years ago and have saved many each year from what i grow so that i never have to buy peas to plant again. these peas are amazing. i’ve selected only the yummiest, fullest peas to plant and in 2018 my pea pods had so many peas inside and matured faster than any others in the community garden.
 magnolia tendril blossom peas in my yarden in 2018. seeds were purchased from baker creek for 2018. i had high hopes for these peas, touted as beautiful and delicious.   the plants were, indeed, gorgeous. beautiful almost oceanic hued tendrils flanked every inch of the sprawling plants taking over the fenceline. i waited weeks. and weeks. for a single pea. i tested my soil. twice. wondering where the hell my peas were. where were the flowers?   eventually, a handful of peas showed up. pretty purple-podded things.   they were awful. bitter, terrible. yuck. i saved what was there for seed and pulled out the plants without pity for the plants.   in its place i put in some pole beans. they did fantastic.   good riddance.
