saving pea seedsPeas are a great choice for seed saving. Just let the pods ripen on the plant until the pods turn brown and start to dry up. This often takes about 1 month after you'd normally harvest. Spread out the pods indoors and dry for 2 weeks before shelling. Or, you can dry the pods and plant whole in the ground when it comes planting time. In the meantime, store seeds in a tightly-closed glass container in a cool, dry place such as the fridge.
