 Early Frosty Pea Seeds

One of the best pea you can find for the earliest spring planting. Excellent for colder areas. 3 1/2" pods are filled 
with plump sweet delicious peas. Eat right off the vine or freeze. Holds well after harvest. 

Tender and sweet, they can be served fresh and are perfect when added to salads. Cook in stir fry or steam
 early pods for a delectable side dish.  Pick shelling peas when the pods are full, before the peas have a 
chance to harden. Edible pods are harvested before any peas can be felt in them. Can be grown in containers.

Sowing instructions:
Sow seed in spring as soon as you can work the soil - as early as late March or early April depending on how quickly the
 soil warms and dries. Use raised beds if your soil is slow to drain.
Plant seeds 1 to 2 inches deep, 1 to 4 inches apart in rows 18 inches apart. Or sow about 1 inch apart for square 
foot gardens, (about 25 seeds per foot). Shallow planting is best when soils are cool and wet. Plant deeper if soil is dry. Do not thin.
Garden Hints:
Intercrop peas with fast-growing cool-season crops such as spinach or radishes. After final harvest,
follow with late squash plantings or fall-harvested cool-season crops such as broccoli, leeks or potatoes.
Sow fall pea crops about 8 to 10 weeks before first frost date.  
Do not use high-nitrogen fertilizers. Too much nitrogen will result in lush foliage but poor flowering and fruiting 
For the biggest yields grow plants in raised composted beds.  Water regularly.
