I love fresh garden peas. There is nothing better than heading out into the garden, and harvesting a fat pod, sliding the fresh sweet peas out and onto my tongue with a dirt-covered thumb.
It's going to be a little while until I get to enjoy that particular spring treat, of course. Currently my Champion of England peas are only a couple inches high, and the Purple Podded Peas are just emerging. I think if we get some nice rain followed by warm sunny days they should shoot up and become happy long-legged plants. And after that, comes the blossoms and the pods and the fat saucy peas...I can hardly wait.
