I just planted a bunch of old sugar snap peas I had in my seed box.  I'm 
hoping they'll germinate because I am interested in harvesting tendrils and 
tops for salads or stir fry.  TheVictory Garden episode on Sunday featured 
them, and mention of that sparked a thread on pea shoots on the Pacific NW 
list.  One woman posted the following:

WSU Cooperative Extension puts out a publication called "Pea Shoots... a
Delicate and Delightful Green".

In part it reads:

              "Pea shoots are the choice leaves and tendrils of pea plants.
Shoots are typically harvested from
               snow pea vines, although they can be from any type of garden
pea. "
