Our goal was to pick 100 pounds. There were about 12 kids and maybe around 8 adults. We ended up picking approximately 330 pounds!!! That's crazy! We had so many and we were only there a couple hours. We were all dirty, hot, and thirsty, but it was so much fun!
I picked hundreds of these babies today.
I love eating these!! It was so hard to actually pick them and not just consume them all. A lot of people break open the shell and eat the peas out but I just like to eat them whole, including the shell. It's crunchier that way! Make sure to wash them first so that you don't digest a bunch of chemicals and pesticides. Ew.
Also, these would be great in a stir-fry! Add some carrots, onions, mushrooms, red pepper. Put over some nice brown rice! Colorful and tasty!
Frozen and canned vegetables are fine for you. In fact, we use frozen vegetables way more than fresh. But whenever I can, I jump at the chance for some real, fresh vegetables. So much better! I hope you have the chance to take advantage of summer and eat some fresh veggies! :)
