This winter go vertical in your vegetable garden by planting English peas.
These tasty, climbing legumes can be grown during the coolest parts of the year here in Florida.
In Central and South Florida, you can plant English peas from September through February. In North Florida, plant January through March.
Two good varieties for Florida are ‘Sugar Snap’ and ‘Wando’.
As with other vegetables, English peas should be planted in fertile soil where they’ll receive plenty of sun. Give them something to climb on and in a few months, the pea pods should become plump and ready to eat.
Then you’ll be able to harvest and enjoy these tasty treats.
