Every year I look forward to finding pea greens, so that I can stir fry them up. And every year at the farmer's market I don't find them. I hope this year can be different, but I have some questions.
If I wanted to grow pea greens on my own, what variety of peas would I use?
Are pea vines usually sprayed, and would you want to look out for no-spray vendors?
When is the best time to pick?
Do you lose all of the pod harvest or can you have both?
If I harvested a bushel of vines from a U-Pick operation would they look at me funny?
Our traditional pea-picking weekend here is Father's Day, when we go to Rawsonville for peas and strawberries and we make sure to take sunblock and water (note to future self).
