Toss and forget tasty tips

EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

I throw these out every year and let them go to seed. They come back on their own even if I forget to throw out seeds. The tips are delicious and great for stir fry. I love walking through and grabbing some to eat every time I come home from work in the winter. If you are looking for pod peas, this is not your plant. But if you are looking for delicious stir fry and a really easy winter cover crop, this is your plant!

A great winter cover crop
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 0.0
 

What are the pros? Rototiller friendly

What are the cons? Nothing I can think of.

Review:

Plants easily, grows with little attention so long as there are some winter rains, cold hardy, and the biggie for me, easily broken down by a rototiller, does not tangle in tines making a useless ball like many other cover crops.

What are the pros? any soil

What are the cons? ?

Review:

I literally threw these seeds on the ground around the chicken run last fall. Dumped dirt on them and ignored them. The chickens and ducks kept escaping to eat more of these so I finally let them free range and devour the rest to resist temptation.

Probably my favorite pea
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? compact, delicious tendrils

What are the cons? peas aren't tasty

Review:

I've grown this as a cover crop and nitrogen fixer for 3 years now, saving seed each year and in some cases just allowing it to reseed itself, which it's done freely. I appreciate this pea because it doesn't climb and strangle plants in the spring, so you can let it do it's thing until it dies back, getting seeds, pea mulch and the nitrogen it leaves behind. The young tendrils are fat and delicious as well, but don't bother eating the pods or the peas themselves. Since this isn't bred for that purpose, I don't count that against it, as it does the job it was bred to do fantastically. The flowers are also nice ornamentals, and it's a basically zero maintenance plant for me in zone 7b. Also great duck and chicken food.
