    I started peas early for the first time last year and it was well worth it.

    Iam growing peas this year. Most likely a dwarf type. Since peas are such a early crop, Iam hoping to get peas harvested and corn planted and fall harvested in the same raised bed.

    I've grown snow peas, sugarpod peas and ordinary garden peas. Some years I grow a mix. Some years, the local store puts out surplus bags of seed peas at the end of the summer, and that's what I grow.

    Seed peas, stored in a cool, dry place, will give good germination for at least 5 years.

    Snow peas are pretty tasty & sugarpod peas, harvested when the peas are fairly immature, make a good addition to stir fry in a wok. Of course I used to be able to get all the sweet peas I wanted straight off the Viner. We used to harvest about 20,000 acres of them every year. Pea canning / freezing used to be a major industry around here. Those days are long gone. People don't buy canned or frozen peas like they used to (except me).

    Here's a wild collection of charts and graphs on that subject: https://www.pbhfoundation.org/pdfs/a...Bookmarked.pdf

    I didn't read a word of the text, but the graphic data is fascinating. It absolutely proves that somebody collected a lot of data.

    Bob:

    I gave it a quick look through. Not too much in there about peas themselves. But it did show a continuous decline in canned / frozen vegetables. Which is not totally unexpected given the ever increasing availability of fresh vegetables in the marketplace. We live in a fast paced world where transportation is less and less of and impediment. Who needs a slow boat when you have fleets of 747's waiting to haul your fresh products to markets all over the globe.

    If you can get fresh roses from Kenya in two days, why not asparagus from Peru? Think how cheap and abundant tobacco would be if there weren't all the governmental interference out there? (Read taxes.)

    Thanks for the info.
