Is there anything more yummy than that first pea pod full of ripe peas fresh from your garden? I don't think so.
So I'm going to gorge myself when they all come on, but I don't care. My favorite part of having a garden as a kid was snitching the peas before mom could shell them all and either can them, freeze them, or cook them. No way, fresh peas are meant to be eaten by dirty fingers, fresh from the pod, and raw.
As are cucumbers and tomatoes. Now only if they would show as much promise as my peas, I'd be in heaven.
