Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Blue Podded Pea - Blauwschokkers

This post 'Blue Podded Pea - Blauwschokkers' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyra's Garden/ Tyras Trädgård


Peas ready to harvest in my jardin potager.
 Pisum sativum Blue Podded Pea 'Blauwschokkers'


 Isn't it just sweet, my sweet sugarsnap pea!
 It isn't just a pretty pea to look at it is so sweet and delicious too.



This pea is a Dutch heirloom pea and it is from organic seed as well. Both an heirloom and organic, two criteria I really appreciate. This is the first time that I grow this pea and I wonder if it turn green if I cook it? I would think so. Although I don't think any of my blue podded peas will ever reach the kitchen. They are too tasty, I think they all will end up in the gardener's stomach as a snack.


Don't be a stranger my friend! -Write something!

Peas  Love  & Understanding ;-)
