Peas

Peas

(Pisum sativum) Whether grown for green peas, or for edible pods, garden peas are all grown the same way. They should be planted in earliest spring or even in late winter, as soon as soil can be worked. They require a very mellow soil, as the roots are shallow and not especially vigorous. Plant about 1” deep. Most types require support—a trellis, fence, etc. (Bush types are really short vines, and will support each other when planted fairly close together.) The trick is to get them going early enough to take a crop before late spring weather turns really warm, as heat shuts the plants down. Pick edible podded types frequently, as they are best before the pods become tough.
