“Greenfeast” peas are a popular variety known for their sweet flavor and tender pods, suitable for both fresh eating and freezing. Here’s a guide on growing Greenfeast peas:

Growing Greenfeast Peas:

  1. Climate and Season:
    • Peas thrive in cooler weather. Plant them as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring.
    • In warmer regions, consider planting peas in late summer for a fall crop.
  2. Soil Preparation:
    • Choose well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH (around 6.0 to 7.0).
    • Work in compost or aged manure before planting.
  3. Planting:
    • Plant seeds directly into the garden in rows or clusters. Place seeds about 1 inch deep and 2-3 inches apart.
    • Provide support, such as a trellis or stakes, for the vines to climb.
  4. Watering and Care:
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply, especially during dry spells.
    • Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  5. Fertilization:
    • If the soil lacks nutrients, supplement with a balanced fertilizer according to package instructions.
  6. Sunlight and Temperature:
    • Peas prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade, especially in warmer climates.
    • They thrive in temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C).
  7. Pest and Disease Management:
    • Watch for pests like aphids, pea moths, or powdery mildew. Use organic pest control methods if needed.
    • Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.
  8. Harvesting:
    • Greenfeast peas typically mature in about 60-70 days. Harvest pods when they are plump but still tender.
    • Pick peas regularly to encourage further production.
  9. Storage:
    • Use freshly harvested peas promptly for the best flavor. They can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days.
    • Peas also freeze well for long-term storage: blanch briefly and freeze in airtight containers or bags.

Regular care, proper support, and consistent harvesting of Greenfeast peas will ensure a bountiful crop of delicious and tender peas for fresh eating or preservation. Adjust care practices based on your local climate conditions for optimal growth.
