Peas Gardens Across the World (6/24/16)

Peas Across the World

It is time for another edition of Peas Gardens Across the World. This week I am featuring peas from 4 different gardeners that live in places like Australia, Canada, Massachusetts, and Chicago. The great shots in this post include pea flowers, peas ready to be harvested, and harvested peas.

Plenty of flowers on these plants, that means a bountiful harvest is coming.

The sight that any pea grower loves to see, plants full of flowers that soon will be pods.

Angie is a great photographer. I love how she captures this pea flower. You can see each detail, including the subtle green lines that run up the petals.

Who said that vegetables can't produce  pretty flowers. I love pea flowers and in the end you end up with peas - it's a win-win.

Angie from the Freckled Rose shared with me her photos of two varieties of peas she got from Baker Creek, De Grace and Little Marvel (two varities I need to test out in the future). Make sure you check out her blog – it has lots of great photos and information. It has been featured by HGTV gardens. I particularly like her monthly garden tours, where she shows you what’s going on in her garden.

Here is a shot of some purple peas. These peas are so beautiful and much easier to spot when picking as they stand out from the green leaves of the plant. They also produce flowers with shades of purple in them.

Thanks to Raves for allowing me to share this photo of her purple snow peas. She is growing them in pots on a table on her back deck.

Look at this beautiful pea, ready to be harvested and enjoyed.

Kim from Toronto, Canada, let me share the above photo. A beautiful pea ready for enjoyment.

Harvest time - the time when all your hard works pays off. I love this photo of Donna's harvest with the peas flowing out of that colander.
