The sugar snap peas have sprouted and are doing beautifully. Not a nibble anywhere. This is quite a milestone for us after two years in an unfenced plot. I can’t remember the last time I ate garden fresh peas. According to the West Coast Seeds catalogue, “this is one vegetable every home garden should have. The peas in the pod taste sweetest right after they have been picked – while you’re still in the garden!”

About the Cascadia variety, quoting the seed package:

This delicious snap pea was developed just for the West Coast. The vines do not need a trellis but tumble happily about, growing to approximately 2′ overall. The dark green pods are a nice 3.5″ long and are crunchy, juicy, and sweet.

I am very much looking forward to that happy tumbling about.
