Peas Aplenty

I spent much of yesterday harvesting purple hull peas.  We have a great crop of them this year.

For better or worse, our gardens are safe for creatures.

We’re pleased that our local university will be serving them in their cafe next Tuesday as part of “Local Food Day.”

Last night Cherie fixed us an delicious dinner of cornbread, rice and a purple hull pea stew, which is one of my personal favorites.

It’s a great time of year.
