We have PEAS!!

I'm so excited!!!  We got our first round of peas this weekend!!  I'll be cooking them up tomorrow night...I can't wait!!  I'm telling you guys...they are've got to grow some!!

I got my first lesson in shelling peas.  Just pinch off the end of the pea and peel the dark green edge (stringy thing) off...I'm sure it has a "real" name, but I'm not too versed in the anatomy of a pea pod yet.  One side is a darker green than the other...pull that works better.


Then, pull the pod open and you have peas!!  I have to tell you that it does require a little work, but it is so worth it!!!   I will post a recipe later this week.
