Peas are a cool season vegetable, so we can have a spring crop and a fall crop.
We often start the fall crop too late, though, and miss out on much of the harvest.
We prefer the sugar snap type, where you eat the entire pod after the peas mature inside (not the snow pea type).
We have experimented with different ways to support peas. (We've also used this contraption for pole beans.)
We haven't been totally successful with peas, partly because we never seem to plant the seeds thickly enough.
As Jim Crockett of Crockett's Victory Garden used to say, "If you're stingy with peas, they'll be stingy with you."
They've been somewhat stingy with us.
