Pinked Peas

The new and exotic pinked snow peas are growing! The decorative pea pods with scalloped edges will just be a delight in salads, I'm sure. I'll save seeds, so let me know if you want some. And welcome to April (April 1st, that is)!

...So the real question is who do you think has been eating these peas? A slug would have finished the whole leaf. Who would only be eating in such a decorative manner?

When the photo first popped up on my screen I thought.... "Cool a lettuce". Never heard of pink peas before.

I'm no gardener, but surely the 'pinked' comes from the edge of the leaves..appearing to have been cut woth pinking shears..?

You can be sure I've not taken my pinking shears to the garden. But, indeed, something has been taking nice little bites out of the leaves. It's a good thing I have some back-ups growing in the garage. But, no seed takers?

Hmmm... April 1st. Hmmmm. I'm guessing a scrapbooker used some of those fancy edging scissors on these beauties. Or maybe it has something to do with that boulder in my garden??

perhaps a slightly anorexic slug? or a very finicky one?

A little mouse perhaps?

Wonderful photos

Funny! I don't know who took little bites out of your peas. Perhaps the garden fairies did it? ;-)

Yes, little pixies wanting to make the pea leaves look all lacey!

We finally got a tiller so we can have a real garden. I'm waiting for my beets to sprout up. thanks for the picture of beets coming up. I love how you show your gardening techniques. It's very educational to me. Hope the little frog gets lucky tonight. chuckle
