• Prepare seed bed with compost, worm castings or manures.
  • Sprinkle field peas (available from stockfeed or produce stores) over seed bed and cover lightly.
  • As the peas grow, tender shoots can be harvested for fresh salads and stir fries.
  • Dig in the crop as it starts to flower and the foliage is green to a depth of at least 20cm.
  • Planting of vegie crops can begin within a few weeks.
  • Alternatively allow the crop to produce and trim off foliage at ground level and lay back on top of the soil.
