Today a friend gave us a huge bag of veggies. There were some Spanish onions, snap peas and around two kilos of green peas inside. I already had a lot of different peas in the fridge so I decided to shell, blanch and freeze the green peas. Mr Happy and I sat out under the pergola and shelled away while our little princess played on the slippery dip, well for most of the time. It seems that shelling peas is a tad more interesting than climbing up the slide and going down it!! Chasing peas across the tiles, well that's fun! Mr Happy was intent on finding which pod had the most peas inside, most had around eight. Actually I was surprised he stayed so focus for such a long time.
I never seem organised enough to plant the peas but in the end it's great as I get given so many by friends who do all the hard work : ) Now what to do with them?
