First Peas



May I refer you to Mrs. Appleyard, and Deborah Madison? The peas are a little later this year, but just as delicious as always. I picked, shelled, cooked, and ate within just a few minutes. Perfect.

  2. Oh delicious, I'm afraid some of them never reach the pan here, I love them raw. Great discipline is required! Nothing equals home -grown veg.

  3. Yes, Sherri and Carole, they are wonderful. I do like them cooked with butter though!

  4. How funny! I did a Deborah-Madison take with my peas too. She knows how to appreciate the true spirit of any vegetable. With peas, it takes so very little. They are perfect as they are. Enjoy! (I just had to pull the last of our peas, but they were the most bountiful of any vegetable so far this rainy season.)

    Do you ever plant a fall crop? We enjoyed ours last year, and I've been planting sugar snap the past week. Even if they don't mature fully, we'll enjoy them as mange tout.

    Loved the photo of you with George McGovern!

  5. Green with envy here! You are so lucky to have your very own.

    I remember (is it in March?) when the question everyone's asking is, "Did you get your peas in yet?"

  6. Great minds, June! No, we haven't had fall peas. The picture with Mr. McGovern wasn't too bad, was it? I kept seeing the photographer and I tried to look down but he caught me. :<)

    J.G. - Some people say plant on St. Patrick's Day, but not around here! It's a very, very rare March when we could plant peas. I think we did it once.

  7. The trouble with fresh peas, Nan, is that when I'm shelling them, very few actually make it into the pan. LOL!

  8. Nan, they have made me hungry! I love fresh peas- and podding them is such good fun.

  9. Cath and Rattling On, I do like shelling peas. It is peaceful work.
