Sweet Peas

I planted Sugar Peas in my new raised bed. I ordered the seeds from Seed Savers. The catalog description promised broad, pale-green pods with beautiful purple blossoms.

Oh my....the blossoms are beautiful. The first harvest was also delicious. The small peas were so sweet. They really didn't even need to be cooked. I ate several before I made it to the kitchen.

The hot temperatures are beginning to slow down the blooms. Next year I will plant them a couple of weeks earlier. This variety is a keeper!

Amy,

You are my homemaking hero. I wish I knew how to do all the gardening and canning that you do. One of these days, I'll slow down enough to learn!!
