Wee Harvest Monday
Broken Camera Edition
Still with the broken (probably unfixable) camera so I'm using my daughter's which would if it could take a closeup but can't. Anyhow, here is a wee bowl of goodies: peas, currants, strawberries, garlic scapes and a cherry on top.
Yesterday I raided the strawberry plants and pea vines then promptly ate them with family so today's harvest is more modest though just as delicious. You'd think with three different locations for fresh peas either edible podded or shelling, I'd have enough but I'm not sure. After all, we're talking peas here: one of the most delightful aspects of spring besides strawberries, rhubarb, asparagus, fresh greens and cherries and so on. However, my children don't see any reason to spare a pea if they see one. They should be eaten right then and there. In fact, you should camp out near the pea vine and scarf them all down. Sure, this is great. There isn't anything more local, in our case organic or delightful right? Except occasionally mom wants to preserve the odd pea for seed starting next year especially those that are particularly prolific and early. BORING.
Strawberries, on the other hand, are free game right? Must plant more.
