Let the true pea harvest begin!
I've been picking a few peas here and there from the row that I planted early this year. They have been my snacks, my breakfast, and I've given a few to my son ... just a few. I know I should give him more, but I love peas. I am a pea hoarder.
Probably 90% of the reason I have a garden at all is for the fresh peas. I can, literally, eat an ice cream bucket full of the things for breakfast (although I try not to because it really reduces the number I can freeze). The first couple of years I had a garden I didn't plant nearly enough. I wanted enough to be able to pig out on them and also freeze some for winter. I learned that I had to plant a whole lot more. So I did, and last year I had enough to freeze and eat.
The peas that I planted after the fear of frost this year are now coming into their own. After picking a pail full this morning, you wouldn't even know it.
Mmmmm ..... peas!
