Stuck in the Middle with You

Snow pea bloom in the sun at Floyd Bennett Garden, Brooklyn

Late November bloom on a snow pea, Floyd Bennett field

It's been two months since the last blooming snow pea caught some rays in my garden plot and it's another two months until there will be a chance to plant them again. I grow them in the spring and the fall, both for eating and as a nitrogen fixer to turn under. But last year, I got some seeds from Yakov and Ayala that produced such pretty pink and purple flowers that I had to grow one vine for decoration alone. We're not quite halfway through winter, but it feels like a halfway mark of some sort.
