When are peas done

Post  Gilly21 on 5/26/2012, 5:42 am

Harvested all the peas off my vines that were ready and no new flowers growing. I think the vines are pretty much done but want to make sure before I cut them out. When are peas done growing for the season? How can you tell?

When they stop blooming. Depending on the heat, you might get another burst of bloom if you hit the roots with some compost tea, assuming the plants are still green and healthy. But, here in the south, our peas are pretty much shot by June. There's a reason the old timers call them May Peas. Razz Time for butterbeans.

+1 Very Happy They should produce once more if it's not too hot... keep the peas picked off the vine and they will most likely produce again.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
