Hendi, that surprises me, because I get poor performance out of peas of any kind in the spring here. But, the south is not the southwest, I guess. The only luck I have ever had is with snow peas in the "fall/winter" if you can call our seasons fall and winter. I usually just refer to them as "not summer."
I am giving peas a chance, as JayPoc suggested.
This year I planted them here and there in the raised bed, where I had the space, just to see how they would do. The two that got the most sun got quite large very quickly and I harvested a whopping 5 pea pods from them...before they shriveled in the sun and were dead in a 2 day period. The rest followed them in short order.
Yesterday I noticed some very weird tendrils behind the cucumber and dove in to find one of the peas had crawled along the ground, under the cucumber and is thriving on the trellis, shaded by the bigger plant. After much sleuthing and inspecting I also discovered one more survivor growing between two tall vertical tomatoes on a trellis! Both had little flowers opening up on them!
Neither of them seems to be getting even indirect sunlight, so I am not sure how they are surviving but seem to be the best I've done with spring peas so far!
