Steve, I'm not sure if I'll be able to eat them. I've read that you have to cut down the plants when they are in bloom. You can either leave the branches on the ground to decompose or chop them up and dig them in so they decompose faster. That's what I'll probably be doing. I want to plant them in September and hope I can turn them under in the spring. I like to plant early so we'll see. First time doing this.
any of the peas will probably work as a cover crop for you there as i don't think you get hard frosts. if you do the edible pods sorts and like edible fresh peas those are always delicious to me.
