Hi, I bought 7 dried peaHi, I bought 7 dried pea straw bales to use as mulch to condition some soil on our property(i live in Australia). over an area approx 4 metres wide x 15 metres long. I laid out the pea straw then covered it in eucalyptus wood mulch. I planned on that being a base for building a row of vegie beds. We got a good dose of rain and all the pea straw has generated fresh green pea sprouts. are these sprouts viable and able to grow and produce peas ? or should i just remove them. Im very surprised to find the hale bales have produced live sprouts.
