Do-It-Yourself Going Green Ideas
Peas can be planted as soon as the ground is workable and the soil temperature has reached at least 40 F.
Pea plants can survive frost and temperatures down to the lower 20s but are susceptible when emerging from soil and during bloom.
WHERE TO PLANT
In the spring plant your peas in full sun protected from strong winds.
Later plantings will benefit from some shade from the afternoon heat. Planting next to taller plants, such as corn, can provide that protection during the hot part of the day.
