BOTANICAL NAME: Pisum sativum
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Best to plant in succession. Peas are hardy but cannot take heat, so plant as early as the soil can be worked. Planted 4" apart into non-acid, moist, well drained soil. Assure adequate calcium, phosphorous, and potash-wood ashes in furrow are good in moderation. Soak seeds before planting & preferably inoculate. Vines may be clipped for salads or cooking once they are 12" high-clip short growing tips as they resprout and start to lengthen. Pick all ripe peas so more will form. Do not tear from vine.
