Vegetable Garden: Growing Cool-Season Vegetables
By: Julie Day
Cool-Season Vegetable #8: Peas
Peas are another very hardy vegetable that can be planted in early spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. They can survive temperatures down to 25° F and even a light snow but don’t like hot weather.
Like other legumes, peas absorb nitrogen from the air and shouldn’t be over-fertilized.
