The seeds came from a local-to-us company, Amishland Heirloom Seeds. Even though I planted these late (mid-June—what was I thinking?) they all germinated and thrived. We've got dozens of fat, mature pods drying now and I presume that they're all as full of perfect peas as the guy in the photo. I still don't know if we'll have enough to actually eat any this year, but we definitely have our seed stock for the spring.
