Use netting or wire trellis or short tree branches stuck into the ground to support these heavy bearing vines for easy picking. Turn a sprinkling of bone meal and wood ashes into the soil before planting. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered, and mulch to conserve moisture.
HARVEST AND USE
Pick frequently when pods are fully formed but still flat with tiny immature peas. Snow peas are delicious in stirfries with ginger, soy sauce and garlic. Cook very quickly, just until pods turn a deeper green color. Or simply enjoy the juicy pods fresh off the vines.
