Golden Sweet Snow pea stands out from the other snow and sugar peas.
I planted a few cool weather crops, but nowhere ear what I planned. May be good though. They are already bolting, so I may stop planting early and instead, plant late.
But that is not what I meant by latest garden. By now I usually have all my warm weather crops in the ground or about to plant from starting inside months ago, but.... I just put a few seeds in yesterday, a few today with MANY more to go.
I have three hugelkutur beds (burying wood and other organic material under the bed for slow composting, but I tilled the other again today in preparation for the rain I HOPE we get.
I am trying a new snow pea this year and at first blush,I think I will like it. It grows like most other snow and sugar snaps but they are yellow as you see in the picture.
I grew them to make harvesting easier. I am always missing so many of the sugar snaps that when I saw one that "stood out" from the rest of the plant.
They have a blue/purple flower similar to the yard-long beans I grow and the taste (raw) seems to be comparable if not better than other snow peas. The sugar snaps should eventually be a little sweeter, but right now even those are similar.
I got these from Baker Creek, but I have seen some called Indian Yellow (from India) at another seed company that may be the same. These came from India as well.
The big white thing is Spotty's butt but the sugar snap flower to the right of her butt is white while the dark blue spots (take my word for it) near the bottom of the picture are early flowers of the golden pea.
That golden pea you see with the flat face toward the camera was my taste test so it is history. :-)
