How To Harvest

Vegetable Seeds Heirloom
The great thing about saving pea seeds is that you
don't even have to set aside a special bed for it.
You'll inevitably allow a few pods to get too woody
before you pick them just leave those on the vine
and they'll mature nicely
To collect seeds, select fully dried pea pods that ‘rattle’ a bit
when you shake them.
Gently pry them open at the ‘seam’ – if they are ready this
shouldn’t be too difficult at all.
Many will have already begun to split.
Store seeds in a cool dry place.
