Frugal Gardening 101:: Garden Fresh Peas

by GettingFreedom on June 14, 2011

Last year was our first year growing peas.  We were all sorts of excited…and then Blake came. All of our peas were ready when we were in the NICU with him, so we never got to enjoy the fruits of our labor.  This year, I was bound and determined to grow and harvest home grown peas!

I was so excited when I realized that I had some peas that were ready to be harvested.

Our First Pea Harvest

Apparently, I need to plant a lot more so I can harvest enough to eat as part of meal, instead of as a snack or salad topper!  Next year, I want my garden to look like my friend Miriam’s.

Not only is this the first time we’ve harvested peas, it’s also the first time I’ve ever eaten fresh peas.  Garden fresh peas are amazing!  I’m convinced that all pea-haters hate peas because they’ve never actually tasted what they should taste like.

Do you grow peas? Tell me about it!  I would love some pointers for next year!

Now it’s your turn!

How’s your garden coming along?
