  • Companion Planting: Plant near alyssum, carrots, chives, corn, lettuce, mint, radish, spinach, turnip. Chives have the ability to repel aphids. Mint not only enhances both the taste and health benefits of dishes, but also improves flavor. Alyssum serves as an attractant for pollinators and promotes the presence of green lacewings, which are natural predators of aphids. Avoid planting peas in close proximity to garlic and onions as they can impede the growth of peas.
  • Preparation Ideas: Shell peas and rinse under cold water. Place peas and add water until peas are covered. Bring water to boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer peas until fork tender (approximately 1 minute). Drain and add butter, salt, and pepper to taste.
