picking peas

it took me about two hours to clear out the pea patch this morning.  it took two of us three hours to shell them all!  we got just over 3 1/4 kilos of peas, more than enough to take us well into the fall or even winter.  i’ll likely plant a small second crop in august to harvest in the fall.

tomorrow the fava  bean come in and none too soon.  they are being attacked by black aphids in the zillions.  i hose the little buggers off but they seem to climb right back up.

sorry for the poor photo…always take of  glasses before focusing;)
