For Saturdays dinner I harvested all the peas that were ready and ended up with 11oz of peas. I don't really have the space to grow a lot of peas so they are always low yielding. With my 4' row I usually end up with two pickings with each one being enough for one meal. They are certainly worth the space though as fresh peas are so sweet. Previously I hated peas until I tried freshly hulled ones and now I am converted. These peas were boiled for a couple minutes and tossed in butter and S&P. The second picking will be made into a Pea Risotto which should make it into Thursdays Garden Meal if they are ready in time.
Matron over at Down on the Allotment is hosting Matron's Worldwide Veggie Show 2009. To participate you take a photo of six veggies that are a uniform shape, size & colour and submit it to her at Ahhmatron@aol.com All the photos will be judged on July 14 and a winner will be selected. Should be fun! The photo above is the photo I am submitting. Everyone should join in and see who ends up top of class.
