Container veggies perking up

The cauliflower went through a growth spurt and the lettuce took off too.
This frilly reddish mustard is really good. Part of a mix, so I don’t know which one it is.

I'd perk up if I was in Florida! Very nice and I'm a tad jealous. It's below zero here.

Yikes! While there are lots of things I miss about the “up north” places I’ve lived, waiting forever until spring gardening isn’t one of them. I love being able to grow outside all year.

Today I finally managed to not eat all the snap peas as I poked around in the garden, so I added them to the Thai red curry for dinner.

Looking good!

Nice!

Thanks! Sugar Magnolia and a few Magnolia Blossom, with Royal Snow to follow.

Those red podded snap peas are gorgeous! What variety is that?

PlainJane February 15, 2019 06:19 PM

Those are the Sugar Magnolia peas...more purple than red. From Baker Creek.

Those are pretty. I bet they grow tall rather than "bush". :surprised:

Here are my bush snap peas. I think "Sugar Daddy".

Nice, Shrinkrap! I refuse to buy snap or snow peas as they taste nothing like home grown fresh picked.
Yes, they get 6 to 7 feet or so but not crazy tall like pole beans.

Those are pretty peas, PJ! Boy, I'm tempted but thank goodness the allotted space for peas is filled. :lol:

I've grown sugar snaps twice and somehow once they went into the freezer they hardly ever came out. Maybe out of sight, out of mind. The second time I didn't provide any support as the catalog description said they didn't need any, that they'd support each other. Well, a storm came through with high wind and laid those peas down just before first picking. What a tangled mess! That was the last time I grew them.

A couple of times a wind blew the snaps off their supports and it was a devil of a time tying them back up. But ... they taste so good fresh I always grow them.

Those peas look so awesome.

Lol, I’m a sucker for unusually colored vegetables. I maintain a neighbor’s planter and last weekend they discovered their cauliflower is purple. It was pretty funny.
