Planting Tips for Heirloom Peas:

Heirloom peas like it cool, so you can plant them 3-4 weeks before your last frost date in soil that is well drained and raised in beds or rows.  Germination temps in these heirloom peas is as low as 45 degrees and it is often said that a cooler pea will be sweeter.  If you haven't planted any legumes lately, then using soil inoculation will increase yields by boosting the available nitrogen in the soil.

For the highest yields of these delicous edible pod peas, make sure they have thin wire or string to climb.  This will give them more room to grow, thus collecting more sunshine and creating better yields.  Remember to continually pick the ripe pods as to encourage a longer harvest.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.



Serves 4 as a side dish.

1 T olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T fresh ginger, peeked and chopped
1/4 t red pepper flakes
18 oz of mixed edible pod peas cut into 1 inch pieces (i.e. snow peas, sugar peas, etc.)
1 t soy sauce or tamari
1 t sesame oil
1 t sesame seeds

Heat olive oil in a pan on medium-high heat.  Once the pan is hot, add garlic and ginger and stir until fragrant (about 1 minute).  Add all other ingredients except the sesame seeds and cook until pea pods are crisp yet tender.
remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
