How many snap pea plants would you sow for 2 adults? I'm just looking for enough to garnish salads and occasionally as a vegetable for dinner. I certainly don't need to be eating them every night, will be eating the whole pod not shucking, and I don't plan on freezing any.
How many snap pea plants?
Be sure to pick the peas when they emerge from the flower. Thats when they are tender & sweet, & look like snow peas.
microbiology1 - birds and slugs love to eat young pea plants! Sow enough seeds to take this into account. Sluggo Plus will kill the slugs and sowbugs.
Personally, I have three 24' rows of peas - but I plan to freeze most of the harvest.
I have four Dwarf Grey Peas planted, mainly because of a small yard. But if I had a huge yard, or rather a field, then I would do the whole HoneybeeNC thing.
synsfun - one day I'm gonna measure that "field" back of my house! LOL
It is a nice big backyard, which is why I chose this particular location. HATE the house, LOVE the yard!
My yard is so small that I can cut it with a riding lawnmower before the engine gets warm on a hot summer day! lol.
