Favorite Kind Of Peas

Postby ga. prime » Sat Jul 15, 2006 4:07 am

Straight out of the garden, I like Pinkeye Purple Hulls best. Cream 40's and Sadandys, I like better out of the freezer. This year we're having a bad drought and the Sadandys have really out performed the other two productivity-wise. I don't irrigate peas.

Mike; Next year you should plant your pearl millet patch in peas. That should be plenty for you, the deer and your cows. It should also leave plenty of "N" for your winter grazing.
I plowed my garden in yesterday to kill weeds and get ready for the cover crop.

You plany any peanuts this year? Those were good ones you had last year!

Red Ripper peas used to be my favorite with their boiled peanut flavor. I also liked the rapid growth and vining of the Red Rippers that helped to shade out the weeds and they grow well in sandland,but in the last few years White Acre peas became my favorite because of their superior flavor. Now I cannot eat peas or beans because I am a borderline diabetic and they have a high starchy sugar content.

We love the sugar snap peas. Just transplanted them to the garden this week. A month earlier than last year.

When I had deer problems in the garden my secret was a 30/30 shot to the stomach so it runs off and dies in the woods and you don't gotta fool with it tends to help take care of the deer that have a taste for gardens.

That might work for you but for here that wouldn't get rid of the deer problem any more than killing one fire ant mound would get rid of the fire ant problem. What works here is an 8 ft fence.
