(Pisum sativum) 50 seeds per packet (unless otherwise noted). Peas should be sown as early as possible in order to mature before the hot summer weather. To secure an extra early crop, the smooth seeded varieties may be sown just as soon as the ground can be worked. The wrinkled varieties are not quite as hardy and should be planted a little later. Sow 2 or 3 inches deep in single or double rows 3 to 4 feet apart. The tall-growing sorts require brush or other support. This is not so necessary for the dwarfer varieties, but they are greatly benefited if kept up off the ground.
