We have a little wire fence around the pit mainly to keep the dogs out, but it serves nicely as a trellis for the peas in the spring and then beans later in the summer. I take the little english hoe and make a little rut around the inside of the fence. I throw the peas out pretty liberally and then cover the furrow back over with the hoe. After a couple of weeks I thin the plants a little and then I just let them go. spring 2012 has been pretty warm so the peas got off to a good start this year. We've got them shelled and sitting in the fridge waiting for us to figure out what to do with them.
