Snow peas and snap peas
Had a sudden "DUH!" moment recently when I realized from something I read that these are the SAME THING--just depends on when you choose to pick them! I had been stressing out about which variety to plant for the flat pods(snow peas) to use in stir-frys, and which to plant for the fat-podded snaps when the little light bulb went on in my head.
Anyone else in the same "stupid boat" as me? LOL
I love the shelling types, but hate the time-consuming chore of shelling and the waste of pitching the pods (of course, they are not a total waste as they go into the compost!) so I prefer the snaps--and "graze" on them a lot while working in the garden.
Anyway, ended up planting 3 different varieties of the edible-podded kind and a double row of Green Arrow as well.
