Today I sat between the tomatoes and the peas, sweaty from having worked in the garden, and devoured all of the garden peas I could find. All of them. At first I felt guilty, but then I decided that is the gardener's prerogative - I'm growing it and I can eat it when and how I want. I've never grown peas before, but I have now decided that they are my favorite of the legume family. I like sugar snaps but am not a huge fan of the sometimes leathery pod. I like green beans, especially small tender ones right off the bush, but I LOVE english garden peas. I literally just ate all the peas off every vine we have, even the ones that were still really small. I just couldn't stop.
So, today's harvest photo is a little smaller than it should have been, but that is the joy of gardening.
Did you see those strawberries?!
They are just as delicious as they look! Our plants are finally starting to really produce - we're getting 15-20 strawberries every few days. I think I'm going to be able to start freezing some.
