Grow alone or in mixes as a short-term green manure.Pea tendrils (the most recent 6–8" of growth) are also great in salad mixes, and the dry yellow peas can be cooked in soup. In spring or fall, sow alone at 3 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (120 lb./acre). Can also be mixed with vetch and/or oats, winter rye, or ryegrass. Peas smother weeds better than spring-sown clover. Inoculate with Garden Combination Inoculant (#7531) or Pea, Vetch, and Lentil Inoculant (#7534) for best performance.
