Waste of time & effort ?
I've just read the thread about cucumelons and how they were bitter and needed pickling. I wondered if you'd grown anything with great expectations and found it a waste of time and effort.
Asparagus Peas. They needed a great deal of heat to germinate, they were carefully potted on, hardenened off and placed in a prime position, they needed a good sized area. They produced plenty of slender pea pods. I picked them very young, a lot smaller than my little finger, as directed. I was so looking forward to them.
They were like cardboard, they didn't taste one bit like asparagus. In fact steamed they didn't have a taste and stir fried they irritated my throat. On the positive side the flowers were lovely.
