I'd been disappointed with peas in the garden in past years, I never seemed to yield much. This year, I build proper trellises with the bamboo that fell during the blizzards over the winter. Got about a quart of shelled peas!
Let's see if we can add relevant information to change this to World University's Agriculture School (with something of an organic focus) ... worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Agriculture_School (I think this is the correct URL - don't have great access from internet here - poke around if it isn't).
I added this information about peas (http://urbanext.illinois.edu/veggies/peas.cfm) to the World University Agriculture School.
Try inoculating pea roots with a nitrogen-fixer.
