Peas in the Pod

really is there any other way to eat them?

This plant is growing from seeds that I saved from last year.  I think I many have been a little heavy-handed when sowing them, expecting the sparrows would eat many of the shoots.

Alas they ate NONE!  The old iron trellis is simply covered in pea tendrils.  However, the thrilling part for anyone under the age of 9 around here, is the flowers.  A sure sign that pods will soon be ready to eat.  I’m yet to tell the older two that there are peas to pick, as Mr2 has decided he likes peas.  And dang it, thats the second vegetable he will eat without an arguement!  For now its’ our little secret!
