If you want to start a home garden, pea seeds are some of the fastest and easiest seeds to grow. Pea seeds can be planted directly into your outdoor soil, without the need to first germinate indoors. They will usually pop out of the ground after about 10 days and will be happy so long as temperatures remain on the cool side. This makes peas a wonderful crop for early spring or early fall, depending on your particular state. Remember to have some sticks or netting in place so your pea plants will have something to wind their way up as they grow. Planting next to a fence is also a great idea, because believe me, they’ll shoot up fast. Check out this video from urban horticulturist Mr. Green Thumb for some more tips on planting pea seeds.
With 394,667 acres devoted to peas farming, North Dakota leads the nation in the production of field peas, or “dried peas”. More than half of the field peas grown in the United States are grown in North Dakota, with the remainder of peas farming concentrated in Montana, Washington, Idaho and California.
The cool temperatures in North Dakota are just fine for the field pea. In fact, the country that produces the most field peas in the world is Russia. Field peas are sold as dried peas for humans as well as feed for livestock. Due to their high protein content and easily digestible nutrients, dried peas are a healthy staple in the diet of both humans and animals.
Watching a pea harvest in North Dakota is a lot different than the harvest of your fresh garden peas. Instead of picking each pea one by one when they are fresh, a giant tractor harvests them after they have dried.
Lucky for me, pea plants are some of the easiest and fastest growing seeds in the world. Whenever I plant my garden, peas are the first plant I see pop out of the ground and remain my most reliable crop throughout the season. As long as you can keep your pea plants well picked, you should expect new pods to keep popping up faster than you can say, “Get your pea sheller ready.”
Children love to plant peas because they don’t have to wait a long time before seeing them stick their heads out of the soil and get bigger and bigger in front of their eyes. You can enjoy some of the majesty of pea growing in this short, time-lapse video I found on Youtube about pea plant development.
The particular pea plant in this video displays a mutant gene that creates two leaves on each node.
