Sugar Snap Snow Peas
Snow Peas are one of the great joys of the spring garden. They don't much like heat and are ready to harvest quite early. Now is the perfect time to plant them.
These are Chinese restaurant peas, perfect for steaming, stir-fries, or eating right off the vine. Snow Peas grow on 3' bushes, so you don't need to stake them, but tomato cages will make them easier to harvest.
Even the smallest garden has room for a crop of snow peas. They'll be mature in 60 days, and you can start picking them as soon as the peas inside start to form. This improves their flavor and makes for more peas. Who can resist fresh peas right off the vine?
Kids eat their vegetables if they plant them.
Sow seeds 2" apart directly into the garden in rows a couple of feet apart. Peas need rich soil, full sun, regular water. Plant a batch every 10 days for a long harvest.
