I picked a third of the peas yesterday and they tasted great. I have never liked peas mainly because I have only eaten frozen ones that always seem to have a grey taste. Fresh from the garden they are sweet and have a bite almost like al dente pasta.
I just boiled them for a couple minutes, drained and then added butter, salt & pepper to the pot. Then served with lemon, thyme chicken from the grill. It was very tasty and healthy. There is about two more pickings left on the plants and then I am going to replace them with turnip that will be ready to harvest in the fall/early winter.
I also have another insect shot from the yard, this time it is an orange spider. It seems to be the time to find orange insects around my house, what are the odds of that? It is making a web between the front porch post and the window box on the railing.
