You may or may not know that I have never eaten a fresh pea before. Well today was the day! Wow! Have I led a deprived life! Yummmmmmmy! The pea experiment was a success. They will become a staple in my garden. Quite frankly, I don't know that I will ever eat another pea unless it is picked fresh from the vine.
So, back to today, as I picked the peas I noticed that the 2 young boys (4 and 7) next door were out playing and I offered them some. To my great pleasure and quite unexpectedly, they said "yes". They were popping them like candy!
I was so obsessed with this wonderful little veggie that it turned into a little game. Squeeze along the seams to pop the pod open......reveal perfect little green orbs......pop the slightly crunchy little orbs in mouth. And oh how pretty for pictures. I was glad that my kids were out and hubby was visiting the neighbors cuz a pea photo session was a little over the top for them.
Who knew how delectable peas were? (Probably everyone but me but that's OK. Better late than never.)
