As previously said peas are growing quickly. The peas pictured on the trowel were drilled 6 days ago! Peas are at last emerging rapidly and the other picture shows peas that were only drilled 11 days ago. Yesterday the gang drilling were very observant and spotted an Oystercatcher nesting in the ploughing with a quite angry mother protecting her eggs. They should be off before harvest or would be difficult to spot in the night. I wonder if our temperatures in the mid 20s are comparable with out Menorcan outpost!
