Home corsages Peas


by greenrabbitdesigns

It is so nice to be able to go out into my garden and pick a basket of homegrown peas from my own raised bed for Sunday lunch!
This is the first year of my raised bed and it is a learning curve, there are things that I won’t do next year but there are many that I definitely will do again. Vegetables such peas, beetroot, scallions (spring onions) and courgettes have been great, hopefully the strawberries and raspberries will be better next year, however what we got were good! There are still carrots and onions to come. All in all it has been an an enjoyable experience.

Anyhow back to the peas, we had to restrain ourselves because they were so delicious raw we were in danger of not having enough to cook for lunch!!

As I was podding the peas I thought to myself, could I make a crocheted pea (as you do!). So I had a go and the above specimen is what I came up with!

I then got carried away and crocheted a unopened pea and some pea tendrils with little drops of dew on them and tied them all together with a little ribbon. I’ve added a brooch back as well, it is a bit of a quirky corsage, I may add it to a bag, we’ll have to see!!

Happy week everyone and remember to eat your greens! 😉

I adore the crocheted pea, it’s really wonderful… I think peas taste there best straight from the pod 🙂

Had no clue it was possible to chrochet peas – how cute! 🙂

Viv, You are so talented! I couldn’t tell the real peas from your creation. Soooo amazingly clever! Yes, it is hard to save fresh peas for a meal. They are so yummy just as is. I add them to our green salads. Knew you would love Mia’s bunnies!! Have a great week. xoRobin❤

Oh yummy! I would much rather eat them straight from the pod than cook them.
The crochet peas – well they are just too cute.

F (6) wont touch peas from the freezer but this year became addicted to ones straight from the pod in our garden! I love your crochet version. Bethx

You have done really well with your crocheted pea pod design! How cute are those peas?!!! I love the little dew drops too! x

Love snap peas from the garden YUM!! I don’t know how you do the crochet that you do – but you do it well 🙂

Dear Vivienne,

I adore peas: the freshness, the ‘I can eat them raw’ freedom, the colour, their versatility in recipes.

I must confess I have fallen in love with your crocheted peas. You are so clever. Those little glass beads…. ahhh. You have seen enough of my new blog to see that I have a weakness for such finishing touches.

I wonder if you could make sweet peas with tendrils too? Now there’s a challenge 😉

Beautiful crochet peas……….now I’m imagining a whole garden of luscious vege’s ……………both real and crochet, now Vivienne, I wonder how you’d crochet a cauliflower, lol!

I love the peas, both the fresh ones and the crochet ones! I think I prefer the taste of raw peas to cooked ones, and it’s a happy childhood memory for me eating them like that in the garden! The crochet peas look lovely, I love vegetables made with crochet and yours are extra special with the tendrils too. Have a great rest of the week, Vivienne.

There’s nothing quite like eating peas from the pod is there, and how inspiring they must be, I love your crochet peas with their dew drops – delicious! Vanessa xxx

I love the crocheted peas! Our peas didn’t do so well this year – but other things have more than made up, so we can’t complain.

Hi Vivienne

I to love walking down the garden to collect the veg for dinner!
I havent bought any veg for over a month.

Though swapping carrots and beans is becoming a bit monotonous, at least there are a few cobs of corn now.

Love the peas!!
