pea planting row configuration
I've been experimenting with pea row configurations - comparing the area taken by two straight rows and a two-three foot wide row randomly scattered with peas. I believe the harvest is significantly larger from the random, wide row, since many more plants grow in the same footprint as the straight rows that have space between. I like that but.....
It is utterly impossible to weed in the random plot as every time I grab one, I am also pulling on a pea plant. It takes a patient person to pick them from the random configuration as the bushes are impossible to support as they grow so they fall over each other.
Still, sticking to the wi(l)de random row for now.
What experiences have you had with this?
