Care:
  • This year I thought it would be fun to try growing “field peas” for the first time.
  • Although they’re called peas, they’re really more like beans, in my opinion.
  • I wanted to grow them particularly to experiment with drying and storing them.


Care:
  • After a few weeks, the cowpeas will start drying on the vine.
  • If you’re having a particularly rainy season, you might pick them a little before they turn brown and finish drying indoors so the peas don’t mold.
  • You also want to pick the pods before they start splitting open.


Special Feature:
Put the dried, even mostly dried, pods in a pillowcase. Toss into clothes dryer on very low for about fifteen minutes. The heat will pull out the rest of the moisture AND split the hulls. Dump into a bucket and shake. Shells and seeds will separate
