Homegrown Mangetout

The Mangetout is ready!!!
I've just finished picking the first proper crop from the mangetout plants in our garden.
They are deliciously sweet and it feels so good to know Scott and I have grown them from scratch!
I like mine heated in a pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper! This really brings the sweet flavour out, but retains the lovely crunch!

As always, the animals have to sneak their way onto the blog :)
I love the swirly vines that the peas use to cling on with. They curl themselves around the bamboo support and this helps the plant grow healthily upright and stay strong.
