Growing Peas

Garry: dig over a trench about a spade wide & deep. mix in some compost (if you have any) add some potash (or wood ash), make a groove about 50 mm deep and 100mm wide. sprinkle peas in the groove and cover, tamp down gently. water well. Keep moist not wet. Now is about the time to get the first crop in (depending on the variety 50 seeds feeds a family of 4, twice a week) put the next crop in, in about 3-4 weeks. My first crop is swimming at the moment :(
