Staking English Peas

At Tutti Frutti Farm more English peas have been getting staked outside as they grow taller and will be ready for harvest as the plantings in the hoop houses begin to fade away.

Once the plants get large enough, stakes are spaced out and driven into the ground.  Next, string is applied and the plants are tied up.  As the plants continue to grow, more string is attached.  Staked pea plants are much easier to pick from than those that are let loose, plus plants lying on the ground encourage diseases.

Staked English Peas

Like the tomato, the pea grows out of the flowers of the plant.  These English peas provide pods full of large, delightful peas.  Chris suggests that these tasty treats be simply eaten raw.

Long, beautiful and delicious English Peas
