PEAS - Pisum sativum.
Peas should be planted as early in spring as you can get on your ground. They do best in a rich, well-limed, moist soil, high in humus. The staple food of Napolean’s armies was dried peas because of their high nutritional value. A 2 oz. Pkt. sows a 30 foot row. 1 lb. sows 125 feet. Approximately 125 seeds per ounce.
