Peas are so much fun to grow and are super beneficial to people, animals, and soil alike. This season, we’ve dedicated approximately 3 acres on the Pye Centre farm property to growing peas as a cover crop in an effort to enhance a large section of our market garden soil.
Though we have miles to go before we sleep, the fields have again been cultivated after three seasons laying fallow. During which, the weeds, alders, and willows had a chance to make themselves comfortably at home. We are happy now to bring you up to speed on the progress of our first official growing season as the Pye Centre for Northern Boreal Food Systems.
