From some comments I have seen on this forum it seems many of you have had problems getting enough peas for a batch for dinner let alone enough for the freezer?
Here is what I have learned:
It takes quite a lot of plants to get a bucket full of peas.
One packet of seed is not going to do it. Get at least half a pound of seed.
Plant three rows 10 inches apart. 4 or 5 rows is even better.
I use my planter to drop the seed. You can see about how close it puts them.
Make those rows at least 8 feet long. 16 to 24 is even better.
They grow up and kind of hold each other up. No staking required.
Peas do like plenty of water.
