PLANTING: Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Young pea plants can tolerate a frost. Work up soil till fine. For increase in yield, TIP: : Apply a stream of pure 3-18-18 liquid plant food on row when you plant seeds (Approx 1/2 gallon per 300 feet) You may also do this when plants are growing beside plants then till it in. Place seeds 1″ deep, 1.5-2″ apart in a row spacing of 30-36″. Taller types will need support. Keep weed free for best results. HARVEST: Pick pods when seeds have enlarged in pod, before sides bulge. Hold vines while picking to avoid tearing of vine. Use fresh, can or freeze for later use. You will need approx 2 lbs of seed per 100′ row
