garden fresh peas
Not much beats fresh picked peas, crunched open between your fingers, and eaten standing in the garden.
We’ve been eating peas from the garden for a few days now but today was the first day that I actually managed to shell enough to bring indoors for cooking with.
I made fresh pea and mint soup and it was a hit for the whole family. It always amazes me how many peas a 3 year old will eat when they are fresh from the garden. This year I planted shelling peas instead of sugar snap and have realized that it is a bit of a pain since my daughter is unable to open them on her own and when she tries to eat the hole pod it is a little too stringy for her liking. Reminder: plant sugar snap peas next year!
