It amazes me how little you get after shelling a bucket like that.
That is about a 4 gallon bucket. The peas weighed 13.5 lb. After shelling and bagging, I had 6 lb. of peas. It is a pretty labor intensive project. No wonder they want $6 a lb. for fresh peas in the store. (unshelled) This was only about a third of what I have. I guess its peas again tomorrow? Sunday is a day off.
No thinning on these. I plant them with the seeder which drops a seed pretty often as you can see from the pic when they were little.
I planted some seed for a late harvest, but the gremination rate was poor. I should have presprouted them I guess. I am thinking it is too late for me now. Anyway the few that came up will give me some treats when out in the garden in September. I won't need any more than that.
Here is a pic just as they started to bloom. Still standing up.
