How to tell when peas are ready to harvest?
I am a new gardener and this is the first time I've ever grown peas.
I am having a hard time finding info on how to tell when they are ready to harvest.
Most guides say to pick when they are "fully expanded". This is probably a fine description for those that have grown them before but I have no idea if they are fully expanded or half expanded or 1/10 expanded.
Some guides say to break a few open to see if they are ready but again the problem is my inexperience. I wouldn't know the difference between a ready pea and an unready pea.
I'm growing Dark Seeded Early Perfection peas. Is there a more exact way of determining when to pick these?
