First Harvest

Picking peas is a little bit trial and error to differentiate the perfectly plump and sweet ones from the hard and starchy overripe ones. Tasting is the best way to know for sure.

We picked 7 pea pods yesterday. Not surprisingly, Roscoe ripped the pods right open and munched on the raw peas inside before anyone else could catch a taste--well, I did get to sample one before he got his hands on them.

I've heard that picking peas and eating them on the way to the kitchen is the happiest way to do it, so I think Roscoe has the right idea.


  1. He is too funny! His facial expressions just show so much exitement!

  2. Love all the pictures! Sounds like a successful (and tasty) first harvest! :)

  3. He is too cute & I would have to say it looks like he really likes them!
