Peas

Young plants are very hardy but frost stops production at the blossom or pod stage. Likes cool moist weather; dislikes heat, so not well adapted to southern climates where the spring heats up too quickly. Sow as early as ground can be worked for best yields. All peas produce more when staked; varieties over 2 ½’ must be supported. Plant 8–10 seeds/ft in rows 3′ apart (5′ if very tall varieties). Early morning picking retards spread of powdery mildew disease and ensures best flavor (courtesy of Fedco Seed Catalog).
