Now that's really interesting on a serious note do you think one should save the biggest or the sweetest sized pea as the smaller ones are nearly always sweete,
maybe zomer44 might give me some guidance, we had lots of mice so dipping in Paraffin seemed to work that's what most granddads used to do i remember,right cheers all Alan

peas

Hi all again ,right i read on one question that Zoomer44 talking about where everyone got their seeds said she does her own ,now does this mean that we can save some of the best peas we grow to use the next year, i did this with 3 red spuds i bought for jacket but forgot they were there ,they were really big croppers and tasted great ,now i know you cant do this normally and was only a one off, but iv had some fantastic peas this year and wondered if i can save some each year as i grow LOTS we love em, can i Yae or Nae just stopped raining and its looking good Be lucky Alan

Hi Welshonion,no the help you me gave was for side shoots growing just like they do on tomatoes and pinching out or not , these are proper figs growing ,but i was wondering if the young plant might do better if i pinch them off to help the plant in its first year get stronger, then allow normal growth next year, the figs are about the size of a golf ball, so it seems best come off then. many thanks Alan
