Well I do grow the flowers, but we have just harvested the first lot of peas for this year. I sent OS on a treasure hunt amongst the weedy pea vines. I would have photographed the harvest but we didn't manage to get them home. I suggested to the boys that they might like to try one freshly picked and that was the end of the peas! It was a revalation to them, at first YS refused to try them "don't they need cooking?" and then there were fights, "Mum he's not sharing!".
So I'll count that a sucess then.
Minimal posting this week as YS has been poorly. Now on the mend (see mention of fighting above)hurrah!

I'm with the boys, I love freshly picked uncooked peas.
Peas are fab, our aren't really yet but we have been eating Broad Beans! Yummy, I love them pulled straight off the plant and into my mouth. Allotmenteering rocks. xReplyDelete
Luck you having peas ready to eat, my pods are still a little flat and need to bulk out a bit yet. I'm glad that VS is on the mend. You never learn do you ? first your rhubarb and now your peas !! you should never have shared the fact that they can be eaten raw ! you'll never get any to yourself now.ReplyDelete
Ha, but I nipped up to the plot after they went to bed tonight. Radish and carrot thinnings + a few more peas made a lovely snack with our evening snifter. And yes allomenteering really does rock!ReplyDelete
