Can I Compost Peas & pea pods?

pea-podYes, you can compost peas and their pods.

Though the pods may seem relatively tough compared to the peas themselves, they will compost down pretty quickly.

If you’re adding them in great quantities, try to include some “browns” (such as dried leaves, newspaper or straw) at the same time to keep the heap balanced.
