Peas : Purple Podded Pole Beans
Delicious and sweet
Long vines reach up to 6 feet with support, and large pods yield 7 to 10 peas each. The peas are large in size, being sweet and tender. This popular garden favorite was introduced in 1881 and is still a standard with many.Fabaceae Pisum sativum
Slugs and Snails
These are mostly a pest of unsupported plants. They don’t really like Peas very much, but will eat them if there’s nothing better available.
Deer, Rabbit, Groundhog
All of these animals love to eat the young plants and must be kept out with fences or dogs.
Birds and Mice
These can be major pests and have been known to systematically eat whole plantings (birds break off the new sprouts, mice eat the seed in the ground). If mice are a problem there are repellent seed coatings available (kerosene was once commonly used). Netting can keep the plants safe from birds, but it’s a real pain to deal with.
