“Peas and carrots,” Farmer Lee Jones mused just a few days ago, “go together like a sock and a shoe.” That’s hard to debate and we quickly realized that his mind was on the best of the summer crops. So, we asked him to share what fresh vegetables he’d put on his 2018 summer crops list. The first? Petite carrots! The second? Mixed snow peas. Here’s more.
There are certain foods that, when you bring them up, people almost instantly begin sharing fond memories of them – and perhaps this is most true of the shelled pea. So, we decided to take a look around online to see what people were writing about these particular memories; in this post, we’re barely scratching the surface of what’s been written. Enjoy!
I like to drive through the fields on Sunday afternoons to check up on how things are doing – what is ready for harvest and what still needs a little more time. My wife Mary and I are usually dressed in our Sunday best for the drive and this time was no different.
Seasonal sweet peas are ready at The Chef's Garden.
The Chef's Garden harvests English peas, sugar snap peas, pea tendrils and blooms to order.
