    Peas drying - they're small pods as they're all the odd ones that were left on the plants.

    Empty pods and contents.

Spec, these peas were grown in the GH for an early crop. I ate some and kept the rest for seed rather than buy more for next year.Smile

I fear it's the North/South divide yet again Spec.

Have you been doing it that way for a few years Veggie, the reason for asking is that I have always read that you should use your best quality produce for seed saving, possibly like using a pea pod containing six or seven peas, but if you have saved your seeds in that manner in the past and still had a good crop, that blows that idea out the water

In my "book" it says a pea is a pea - as long as it grows and produces another pea, its OK.
The idea of mangetout is that you eat them before they form peas, so how many peas there are in a pod makes no difference - not to me anyway.

May I introduce Jessy, a dwarf sugarsnap pea from Real Seeds.
Jessy is growing in a tub alongside her cousin, Bijou, who is twice as tall as little Jessy. She is small, sweet and round, the complete opposite of big, skinny Bijou.
