Bless your pea-pickin’ heart! Fresh peas, grown from pea seeds in early spring, are among the first reminders of how good picked-fresh summer harvest can be. You’ll find a wide selection of shelling, snap, and snow peas in your choice of organic or conventional seeds, treated or not, bulk or small paper packet sizes. So grow a row or two and share with friends. But it’s not spring you say, how can I sow fresh peas? Well, pea shoots are a quickly growing (pun intended) trend that you can enjoy all year long in grow trays indoors. Pea shoots can be grown from, shelling, snap, or snow types. They are harvested young while still tender and you can eat the whole shoot—tastes like fresh picked peas! Pea seeds available from small quantities to bulk at wholesale prices.

Peas are generally organized into two main groups; Garden peas that are grown for the edible seeds inside the pod such as Lincoln and snap and snow the peas that are grown for the edible pod with edible seeds inside such as Sugar snap.
Different pea varieties have different tolerance to frost and heat so be sure you know what tolerances the varieties you plant have. You can also extend your harvest by staggering varieties throughout the season. Despite the fact that some varieties claim not to need staking because of their compact nature, all varieties benefit from some support. It can be as simple as a few stakes and chicken wire. Be careful not to overwater peas. When you harvest the peas you plant depends on the varieties you plant. Snow peas are harvested while the pods are still flat. Snap peas and garden peas are harvested when the pods are full but still tender. Like most vegetables peas benefit from crop rotation. Crop rotation is not only good for the peas as peas can fix the nitrogen in the soil. Till the remnants of the plants into the soil after they have finished producing and the soil will absorb the nitrogen again.
