When and Where to Plant
Plants are hardy and will withstand light frost. Direct-sow seed into garden several weeks before your last expected frost date so that the pea pods mature during cool weather. Re-seed again in late summer for a fall crop. choose a sunny location and a fertile well0drained soil with good drainage. space plants at least 4″ apart.
Mulch around plants with organic material such as grass clippings or shredded leaves to keep the soil weed-free and cool. To keep seed from rotting start some seed indoors or a moist paper napkin and when the seed coat splits and a root emerges, transfer to the garden.
Store by shelling the dried peas and place in glass jars, or freeze freshly shelled peas.
