English Peas

English Peas

For many of us, English Peas, Snow Peas and Sugar Snap Peas are the sweet, sweet taste of spring. Planted as soon as the ground can be worked, these little beauties grow like mad and taste so good they barely survive the trip from garden to kitchen. My daughter and I pick them together and eat more straight from the vines than we ever bring inside.

It gets hot quickly here in the Kentucky part of the Ohio River Valley, though, so the season is way too short for our liking–we must make the proverbial hay while the sun shines.

Oh, and the tender pea shoots are great to eat, too, and help make waiting for the peas themselves just a little easier…

  1. Do you ever do a second crop in the fall? I sometimes do just to help the soil out, even if they don’t make it all the way to eatin’.
