Garden Project 2 - Peas

This is the first year I ever saw fresh pea pods. So when I first saw it, I was mesmerized by its freshness, so I bought a lot of peas. The sweetness of the fresh peas is amazing. I had some left over pea pods sitting in the refrigerator for few days and its sprouted by itself. So I kept it in little bit of soil to see what happens. Only out of curiosity, never had any plans for big harvest. Because like any other seed, I thought you should let the seed mature in the plant, dry in the sun, before you want to germinate and grow.

In couple of days everything is germinated well.

After a week... still in yogurt box, I think it deserves atleast a small container...

In containers... Do you see the small vines coming out?

After a month.... Look at these pretty white flowers.

Young and mature pods. I still can’t believe I grew this one. ;) It is time to munch some.

It only takes 50 days to get mature pods, next year I have plans for a big patch.

O.k guys, I am off to cook some wonderful dishes with my own peas. :)

Oh Nila, they look so cute. You too have started growing vegetables :-( I have never been lucky with my veges. Birds, wild rabbits , pillbugs eat up all the new growth.

nila I discovered your blog today
Such lovely photos
You are lucky to be able to eat farm fresh peas I always love to do so but do not get the opportunity, as I stay in mumbai and here it is not possible to get farm fresh things.
The white roses are lovely I just felt like putting my hand out and plucking one…

Dear Nila, Thanks a ton for this step by step guidance for growing peas in the kitchen garden. I had just started growing a few flowering plants in my garden in the balcony of my small house. I was wondering if I could slowly start growing vegetables and this process that you have shown with such beautiful pictures helps tremendously. The full grown peas look so fresh and green. Such a beautiful sight.
