Peas

Postby Tezell » Tue Jul 01, 2014 5:05 pm

Over 100 bushels of peas so far. Pink eyes are done, squash is almost done, okra is not producing much at all(whipped it and cussed it Saturday). Zippers to be picked again Thursday am. It has been really,really hot for about 2 weeks. I have already plowed the corn under. Planning for the second pea crop to be in on July 11th, will be cream 12's and zippers.

Nice Garden Tim! How big is it?

Quote " I have already plowed the corn under". Tim, out here the old saying is the corn should be "knee high by the 4th of July". :D I like peas, but I don't think I'd want to eat 1/3 of a bushel every day for a year. :shock:

Whipping is supposed to help it, Tim. Mama told me that when she would whip me too, but I couldn't agree with her bout it helping me! :-)

Gotta love this forum. Great harvest.

What kind of peas do you get to grow in the GA heat? I grew up with only being able to plant in April for early harvest before it got as hot as it was today.

What kind of machine do you use to pick 100 bushels of peas? :D

Cream peas,pink eye, black eye, purple hulls.

I am lucky this year, I have a crew of 6 to 8 folks that come when they say they will and so far have done an excellent job on the pea picking. In years past I was the machine. Did not have nearly as many peas as I do now. :D
