Good luck with growing your peas when you go home.
Surely you can order them online before then. My sister grocery shops through Amazon for a lot of things.
We love battered and fried okra even left over and cold the next day! Good as popcorn!
I hope the gentleman that started this thread does not get upset about us carrying on, on his thread.
I can get seed for sure and dried and canned and frozen.... But getting fresh unshelled blackeyed peas here in San Diego.... havent seen them for more than thirty years. Same goes for english peas.... Love em and another that I would like to grow myself. Want to do Aquaponics in my green house room I suspect all will do famously. growing tilapia and freshwater prawns and using the water for the hydro garden....
LOve your swimming pools....How do you keep the roots from being drowned in moisture though.
We don't have fresh peas like that in our grocery stores either. We buy dried beans mostly, but you can find frozen shelled purple hull or black eyed peas and others.
But I can get better prices on dried.
We have some local farmers that do aquaponics with the fish for recycling the water.
My plants are in 7 gallon bags of soil so they drink the water they need. My float keeps the water level at 2 1/2" with an over flow hole at 3" so they won't drown.
My strawberries are that big from the rabbit bedding I put in the soil. I had a rabbit in a temporary cage with hay in the bottom of it. So all the hay and rabbit pellets and droppings got mixed into the potting soil. I just bought these plants in April and they were bare root. So they have come along nicely. But next year they will produce a nice healthy crop of berries for us.They are producing runners like crazy now.
