Tonight we had ham, homemade sourdough bread, and . . from the garden . . peas, kale and carrots. Those peas are so good — sweet and tender. Unfortunately, I ate too many of then raw while shelling them and almost didn’t have enough for dinner.
It makes me so happy to have produce from the garden.

I always ate a lot of raw peas when shelling them, also string beans, lima beans-you name it anything raw out of the garden. Mom was the same, so we would have to pick a lot so we had some for the meal!
That’s funny. I thought you were going to say you didn’t have room for dinner.
Yummy, healthy dinner. Who could ask for anything more?

I planted my tomatoes 10 days ago – can I still add the eggshells and aspirin now ?

LOL – for years I planted peas and added another 50 Asparagus plants. Could NOT figure out what happened to all the peas (I LOVE raw peas! AND raw asparagus!) – so every year I would plant more – a LOT more. After all – SOME of those plants would surely produce, wouldn’t they????
It wasn’t until years later that my daughter admitted that she would steal down to the garden, swipe ALL the asparagus that was up and pick any peas that looked “ready” to her – and would eat them wile waiting at the school bus stop!
I’m glad it was something healthy she ate for breakfast instead of fast food/junk food – but, honestly, wished she could have left me just a FEW asparagus spears and pea pods!
