Despite the soggy weather and attacks from slugs and snails the experimental Blauwschokker peas aren't doing too badly.
As promised the flowers are purple like sweet peas - though not scented,
the pods are deep purpley-blue, at times appearing black
and the peas inside are green!
There aren't that many flowers to be followed by pods but they are quite attractive for vegetables.
They've been hampered this year by the planting of flowers too close to the pea wigwam, so next time I'll try to give them more light and space.
