My Capucijner soup pea crop amounted to 2 cups this year - twice what I got last year. Its drying now in a bowl in my kitchen. I stir them often and remove the few peas that get moldy. Peas and beans for drying are usually left on the vine until they're dry, but it was much too damp for that this spring. They're pretty much dry now after a week in the kitchen.
I thought I would have more soup peas this year. I saved an amount of seeds that I thought would produce 4-5 cups based on last years yield. But it wasn't a good year for peas this year.
