    They are looking good. Mangetouts or shelling peas?

    I only sowed the few seeds from jayb can't remember the variety unfortunately. They are coming along nicely.

    Congratulations on your over-wintered pea success, triffid. I’ve tried to overwinter in the polytunnel so many times but they have always got munched by rodents even when two or three inches high. I have high hopes for Galina’s bottle defences next winter though. 🤞

    Hope your flowering - and no doubt the activity that follows - isn’t too far away, Galina.

    That's great Jang! I wish I was growing Panthers this year. It really is marvelous imo.
    The first to flower here (mid-April) were overwintered Fruher Heinrich. Munched on the first pod yesterday. No broad beans yet.

    You and me both, thiough I trailing you! But as the weather is back to where it normally is perhaps it is ok.

    Hope the Golden Sweet make it. Hope they all take and do their stuff for you Hector.

    A very nice selection.
    Good luck with that second sowing of Golden Sweet. Hope they show willing. At least you don’t need too many plants for a good feed or seed save.

    Panthers is indeed the first in flower apart from the standard early, Douce Provence. Great to see.

    (Picking Oregon Sugar Pod, Douce Provence and Meteor from the polytunnel, together with a few Grano Violetto broad beans. Lovely when the pea and bean eating season starts.)

    Crikey, I am behind you folks. Planted Sugar Magnolia, Golden Sweet, Sugar Blush and Opal Creek, in Root trainers at weekend and previous weekend. Poor germination of older Golden Sweet - planted more to compensate , so waiting for them to shock me and all take

    Yes, I’m looking forward very much to having a go. It seems a great project to cut my teeth on.

    I think Opal Creek x Sugar Magnolia is a cross I also made a few years back but didn't have the chance to grow out. I think it would be a cracking little number.

    Yes it would appear that a small collection is beginning to coalesce! I have a few plans for them.. will have to start another topic

    I look forward to hearing more about your breeding plans with runner beans as well as peas, triffid.

    And are you going to cross any broad beans? I wondered whether you have plans in mind as I think you're gathering quite a lot of different forms.
Working...
