Grow peas this spring if your last frost date is approaching. If you live in a coastal or warm-winter environment, tuck this info away for fall, when peas grow much better. Give them a sturdy trellis, plant them deep, water them well, and watch them climb. They’re so delicious, they don’t make it back to the house. They are the garden snack food, meant to be eaten while gardening.
