Organic Peas: Cascadia Planting Instructions:
To accelerate germination, soak the seeds before planting them. Plant seeds once hard frost has passed, as early as the soil can be worked. Sow peas 1/2 inch deep. Keep the soil cool and moist. Space your Cascadia Pea plants about 4" apart. The plants will vine out and grow about 5'. Use a trellis or supports to prop up new growth.
Organic Peas: Cascadia Harvesting Instructions:
For optimal flavor, snap off pea pods at 3" long. Encourage the plant to grow more pods by continual harvesting. To dry peas for storage, let the pods and peas dry partially on the vine. Pull the plant from the ground and hang upside down in a well-ventilated area until the pods and peas are completely dry. Alternatively, you can freeze peas for storage.
