|I didn't say it was a BIG harvest.|
Thus in the spirit of research, I boiled these little beauties for about an entire minute, then drained them, then added a wee bit of butter and salt, then handed Mulch Boy a spoon. We each got three bites.
And boy are we ever going to double the pea planting next year. Good gravy, people, those little peas were sweet like candy! Actually, Mulch Boy declared they tasted like sweet corn, and we both made yummy sounds and rolled our eyes back in our heads in ecstasy. They were the best peas I ever had in my whole entire life. Mulch has hated peas all his life and now he loves them. We will be anxiously monitoring the pea plants as we wait for the rest of the pods (and there are a good many) to mature.
Meantime, I'm scheming about where I can plant more next year (that chainlink fence in the front yard would make a terrific support for peas, yes?). Is a fall planting feasible? I want to eat these every day!
