It was only by chance I saw an article in one of the national papers about heritage seeds, in particular Carlin peas. As ever I thought that I’d like to try and grow them.

I was surprised when the seeds arrived – didn’t look like peas at all. They germinated well, grew well too. I put them in one of my net cages where previously I had cabbages. That way the birds didn’t get a look in and I was able to leave them there untill I was ready to pick all the pods, already dry on the vine.


I shall certainly grow them again next year, this amount is only from two rows of plants.
