Another challenge is powdery mildew. Pease are pretty susceptible to PM and Fall is a time when PM can be intense. But I like the idea and may try planting some in the tunnel.

I had success three years back -- a bumper crop of beautiful vines and fruit. Last year I had good germination, but irrigation problems stunted them soon after emergence; this year I had 4 peas come up in a 75 foot row. A crap shoot for sure. If it weren't so late for my zone, I'd try pre-sprouting and put more in.
