Saving Peas for Seed
 

Why save peas for seed?

1. It is easy and provides free seed for next year
The chances are if you have grown peas, you have missed a few pods, which have then gone dry and papery. Also, in hot sunny weather, pea plants tend to "frazzle" even if they are well watered. Instead of throwing away these dry peas, save them for next year's seeds.
