Above is the Missouri Extension Service "Vegetable Planting Calander". Open the doucment. Then download the document. Bottom of page 5 and top of page 6. Answer depends on type of pea and your location.

Try the Illinois extension service and see if they have one.

I'va always heard peas go in on St. Patrick's Day. That's tomorrow. Snow's too deep to plant anything here. :D

I would plant the first planting right now IF it were not for the mud!---they will lay in the ground for a long time before they come up, so should escape the killing freezes!---they can stand snow on them after they come up without hurting anything! thanks; sonny

In these parts, I have always heard not to plant a garden before Good Friday.

That can vary by a month since Easter is based upon a lunar cycle. First Sunday after first full moon after first day of Spring. In New England it is St. Patrick's Day too. Sometimes the seeds will rot if it is too cold and wet, but you need to start early because they fade with the hot days of June. You can also plant for a Fall crop. Up in northern Vermont, the traditional 4th of July treat is peas, new potatoes, and cream.
