I started with one row. Then decided that to get some in the freezer I'd
need to plant one to eat, one to get to the freezer. So, now I'm at three
rows. I think it is like miscellaneous paper. No matter how many file
cabinets you buy to get organized, the papers will multiple to fit them.
Peas are the same. I'll bet if I planted 10 rows they would still get eaten
before they could get to the freezer. DH is already talking about putting
them in salads, so if I expand to four rows next year I'm sure they will
only make it as far as the salads. Oh well, they sure are good and good for
you, so the veggies are being eaten and that's the main thing!
