Delicate pea shoots are early risers. They’re one of the first edibles you can get in the ground and among the first you can harvest. So they'll get kids interested in gardening early in the season! Plus, peas are larger and easier to plant than most seeds, so they’re easy for wee hands to tuck into the soil.
Tip: Plant your peas as soon as your garden is workable and marvel as they push up through the soil.
