How long do peas produce?
Trying to plan out the garden for spring planting...and, well, I have a bit of an issue - Peas.
Planning on planting the peas (many varieties) in early March (as early as possible, providing there is no snow then). The peas should then take about 70 days to mature. Which would then be about mid-May.
The summer-garden planting will occur sometime between then (mid May to late May).
Now, what I'm asking is simple. How long will the peas produce? Or, how long will they take past the 70 days to have the seeds mature enough to be uprooted and left to dry? (At the same time, sacrificing a few plants for fresh garden peas, instead of for-seed plants)
Anyone understand what I mean? I'd like to plant the peas, let them mature, then rid the land of them and proceed with the summer plants (corn, squash, beans, etc.), and am kinda wondering if this will work...
