pea green

Just a few days ago I had doubts that it was possible to grow enough peas so that enough of them would be ready at the same time so that they made it from the garden to the kitchen without me eating them up first. (they taste like candy! I can't stop eating them!)

But today I went to the garden and started picking and before I knew it I had a big bowl of peas!


I went home and shucked them, which is always a disappointing activity because the bowl ends up so much less full (I may have eaten a few (dozen) while I was shucking), and ended up with a full pound of sweet, tender little peas!!!

Yum, yum, yum!
