Saving Pea Seeds
As an experiment, I saved the seeds from my snow and sugar peas. Here they are finishing drying out. When I picked them the plant was dried out and brown. Most of the pea pods were also dried, brown and crispy.
I will try and plant them next spring and see what they do. I read that "Peas are self pollinating, meaning that theoretically you should have very little mixing and mingling between plants. The variety that you save should come true."
