I hope you have been enjoying this new series on peas from around the world. I have been enjoying sharing these photos and will continue to do so as long as peas are in season. It’s great to see peas grown by people in different walks of life.
Without further ado, here is what I have for you this week from around the internet.
The first photo featuring Alderman peas, a shelling variety, grown by a community gardening group ran by Petrus Community. They provide supported housing and related services to homeless people in the Rochdale area (the UK). Take a moment to check out their twitter page to see what they are up to.
This photo was taken by Farmer Lee Jones He is a co-owner of Chef’s Garden. He is located in Huron, Ohio, located about 2 hours away from me. They are a farm that is focused on the needs of chefs, growing produce that the chefs can get excited about serving to their customers. Below you will find an awesome video containing the story of this amazing farm.
I will have to keep my eyes on this farm, see what other great things they produce this year.
By the way if you are interested in learning more about Dr. Calvin’s pea, check out this webpage. I am growing two varieties of his that were offered by Johnny’s seeds (Petite Snap Greens and Royal Snow)
This photo is courtesy of Richard Thomas. He is growing the peas with some barley. Richard is a sheep, beef, arable (land that is able to grow crops) and apple farmer.
Eric Olson is growing the Early Frosty variety this year. He picked them up at a seed swap, a type of event that I need to attend one day. He runs a blog about life with a special needs child. He is great advocate for special needs kids everywhere. Make sure to check out his site.
