Peas.[Pisum sativum] for 2011.
I discovered this in a very old garden book.When picking Peas make sure to take care not to break the haulm [Haulm is the stalk section of them].Hold the stem with one hand,while gathering Peas with the other.
Quite tender they are and will break easily if treated rough.
Peas take in atmospheric nitrogen and send it down to the root nodules.This will leave the ground better for the following years vegetables grown there.
