PEAS

Thursday

Our May Harvest of the Month is a special crop because it’s nutritious for our bodies AND for the soil! Spring is pea season. As the soil warms the pea plants produce pods filled with super sweet peas!

It all began…

  • We have evidence that 5,000 years ago early humans cultivated and ate wild peas in the Mediterranean near the Middle East; In countries known as Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan
  • Our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson, made peas popular in the U.S.A. He grew over 30 different pea varieties!

All peas are planted with their pea seeds. But different varieties grow in different ways. Read the chart and look at the pictures. How are bush and vine peas different?

Pea Plants are GREAT for SOIL!

Peas are legumes. Legumes are plants that take nitrogen in the air and “fix” the nitrogen in the soil.

Nitrogen is an element that all plants need to grow.

Legumes are special because they put nitrogen in the soil to help other plants grow!

Legumes typically grow seed pods. Can you think of other legumes besides peas?

Beans like green beans, soy beans, lentils, pinto beans, and black beans are all LEGUMES!

Thursday

Home Grown Facts

English Shelling Peas vs. Sugar Snap Peas

Shelling peas were bred to have large peas that can be eaten raw or cooked. They have thick tough pods that are not for eating.

Sugar snap peas were bred to have sweet pods and peas. They are a cross between shelling peas and snow peas! Both the pods and peas can be eaten!
