Peas : Green Arrow
Long, slim pods grow in pairs, full of plump, sweet peas
This favorite English heirloom variety for home gardeners produces loads of 4 to 5" pods full of plump, sweet, dark green peas on 30" plants. Double pods set heavily at the top of the plant for easy picking. Excellent fresh flavor holds well for canning and freezing. Resists wilt and mildew.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.
