Pea Pickin Time

This is one of my favorite things about summer. And now it is one of my kids favorite things to do. They have been watching Grandma Holly's peas grow all Spring, just waiting for the fat peas to come. Now, most everyday they ask if they can go to Grandma Holly's with the peas. And my mom is always nice enough to let them come and eat the delicious peas.
This is the family bucket that all the peas go into. Grandma usually divides some up at the end of the picking time for each kid. Then we get to enjoy fresh peas at home. It really is heavenly. Few things come close to the yummy taste of fresh peas from the garden.
My kids love to scour the garden looking for the 'fat' peas. It takes me back to my childhood, eating peas in our garden and the gardens in Star Valley. Good times.

I used to do that with little Elizabeth in Omaha---waiting for Ben to arrive. Delicious!

Amy you are starting to sound old when you say things like "it takes me back". I should know, I am almost 40! Peas from the garden are my absolute favorite, if you could spare 6 of them I would share with my kids, not really....
