Austrian Winter Peas

Grew really well last year and loved the flowers as a side benefit to cove crop.

Grew this as cover crop 2 winters ago. Visitors to my garden were collecting greens for salads. I had so many greens that I dried and powdered, put in everything.

Quick to germinate and hardy so far (Excellent customer service too)

I was pretty late getting in a fall cover crop this year, but thought I'd still give these Austrian peas a chance in our office vegetable garden here in Flagstaff, AZ. Despite a couple freezes, windy days, and generally cold nights in the upper 30's, these peas germinated in about a week. They're a couple inches tall after 2 weeks, and I'm excited to see how much growth they can put on before nighttime temperatures hit the low 20's.

I really appreciate all the educational readings and videos offered by Peaceful Valley Farms. They made learning about and then educating other folks about cover crops so much easier. I also appreciate the quick shipping for seeds, especially because I was on the late side of planting them!

Great Cover Crop

I took a chance on this last winter and loved it. It was low growing and extremely hardy - handled zero degrees a couple nights with no problem. Very easy to remove or till under in the spring. We used the tender leaves for salads (great all winter). Also loved the cute white and pink flowers.
