You'll know your peas are ready if you feel the pod and it is fat and solid. The peas will keep on flowers and producing new pods so long as you keep picking.... it will be weeks before we get any peas - sigh!

depends on how big you want your peas. pull one pod and open it, if too small leave the rest a while longer. compost the pods too. its not likely that you will get a repeat flowering though but knowing how lucky you are, i bet you do. :o)

remember petite pois are just small peas!

how's the pergola challenge coming along?

Heehee! Good luck darling!

Don't want to spoil the image, but get Cody to help you "shell" the peas, then put the excess in the freezer to keep the nutrients in!

I'm jealous! Lol!! Will try again next year, so well done you!
