Today I’ve Mostly Been Planting Peas

With a couple of hours to spare in the day you have grand visions of everything getting sowed and a well-deserved beer sat waiting at the end of it. The truth is that it never seems to go that smoothly; the soil needed raking over to a flat level after digging the grass and weeds in the day before. That then meant plucking random weeds and grass growth out of the soil and piling up the many, many, many flint pebbles we have. After two hours of preparing a bed, I managed to sow a quarter of our peas – 5ft, of Hurst Green Shaft peas. Result. I’ll sow the other quarters in April, May and June for a longer cropping period.
