1. Pea cultivation is almost possible on site
Sugar, folding, shredded and shredded peas are grown in home gardens. Peas are easy to grow. It is not demanding in terms of soil and habitat, but the best yield is obtained in a bright habitat permeable to water, in porous and mulched soil.
The soil does not have to be very nutritious and nitrogen-rich, as the pea is able to utilize and bind atmospheric nitrogen like beans with its root-knots. The nitrogen accumulated by the root bacteria will also benefit the next plants in the habitat if you leave the pea root in the ground. Liming the soil before sowing, the pH should be about 6-7.
2. Sow peas in warm soil
Sow peas directly in the open field in May-June. The soil should be +10 degrees, although the pea can germinate in cooler countries. In cold and wet soil, the seeds can rot.
Soak the seeds overnight and sow them in moist soil in a groove 2-3 cm deep, about 5 cm apart. The sowing can be covered with gauze, which speeds up germination. The gauze also protects the seeds from birds that may peck pea seeds from the ground.
The pea also grows well in a pot, where the crop can be supported with a vine support or an obelisk made of bamboo sticks. Peas growing in the open or in a row of crops are also worth supporting, even if the pea seedlings support each other with the help of stalks. The optimal growth temperature is about +20 degrees.

4. Peas are a delicacy with their shelled days
Don’t let the pods grow oversized, which will reduce their sweetness and make the taste woody.
Round seeds are eaten inside the fire by shredded and shredded peas. Sugar and folding peas are delicious with their pods, the pods being flat and the peas immature. As the peas inside the sugar pea start to grow in size, the sweetness of the sugar pea deteriorates. If you’re not sure, try a taste of pods. If the pod is crunchy and sweet, you can enjoy it with a fire. Shreds and shingles are protected by a tough film.
Have you tasted appos? Try to boil the peas with their pods, dip in the melted butter and pull the pod between your teeth so that the peas remain in your mouth.
