1st time Pink-eyed peas/purple hull
I grew up with my parents planting a huge garden every year, and in that garden they planted purple hull peas.
I have a small garden, approximately 16' x 16' and would like to plant purple-hull peas, but my parents are telling me that I need a huge area in which to plant them. Now, I'm not feeding an army, but would like to have enough of a harvest to warrant planting them.
Can I successfully grow peas in a 16' x 16' row? If so, do they have runners or are they like grean beans in that there are some that have runners and some that are bush beans?
Which pink-eyed/purple hull peas do you recommend for planting in this typ of situation?
Since I'm in Northwest Georgia and the days already reach around 80 + degrees, is it too late to plant them?
Thanks for any advice!
