I'm confused....I have been looking for a source for field peas. I wanted to grow some to feed to our hens.

I haven't been able to find any field peas in Canada yet, but now am beginning to hear that peas grown for drying to use in soup is the same thing as a field pea.

anyone know if this is right? If it's right, I have seed on hand, lol....

we buy whole dryed peas/feild peas in 50 pound bags. You have to soak them over night to cook. We use them to make dog food.
I planted about 20 of them once and about 18 of them sprouted and produced alot of pods. The plants we fed to the rabbits.
We ate the pods and seeds. They are not at all as sweet as snow peas, but at the time it didn't matter.

I just ordered Field Peas as a cover crop since it said they are good for soup peas, figured I would kill two birds with one stone, cover crop and soup peas. I have the girls pod them during TV time.
