sugar peas – sowing, growing and harvest

sowed in early spring now, just in the transition from spring to summer, it is time to harvest the sugar peas as long as they are small and tender so you can eat them as a whole. sowing sugar peas is about just making small sowing holes approx. 2 to 3 cm deep and in a distance of 5 cm from one to the other. put 5 sugar peas seeds in every whole. if you sow several rows of sugar peas you have to leave a distance of 30 cm between the rows.

they don’t need much care. they only need a sort of climbing support which you can construct out of some bamboo sticks and some string. for further vertical support i surrounded the sugar peas with broad beans so the sugar peas can twine on them as well.
