David, I've been wondering if these are similar to what we
call field peas.  We always grew these in the garden as I was
growing up.   We didn't sow them in rows, but rather broadcast
them in the plot where they were to grow.  We would get several
large pickings off of them, and froze and canned many of them.
Good eating. :-)
