If you plant something like Victory Freezer or Lincoln, the pods mostly get ready all at once. These can be grown without supports. Plant 4 rows spaced ten inches. The seed can be pretty close in the rows. 1 to 2 inches.
When it is time to pick them, just pull the whole plant, throw it in the wagon and haul it over into the shade of a tree, and sit down on a chair to pick peas. The peas can go to the table and into the freezer and the vines can go into the compost heap, and you can plant a late crop of something where the peas were.
