Nope, it's going to be more like rolling in peas this year.
I harvested our first shell peas today and ended up with twelve servings. (A serving is enough for the two of us at a meal.) Yeah, I understand why many folks choose not to grow enough peas for a winter's supply. It takes a whole big bunch of pods to yield enough peas for a plate. But we both love them and they truly taste fresh-off-the-vine all winter long.
Considering I put up only eighteen servings of shell peas last year (for some reason my peas did not do well in 2019) and now I already have twelve servings in the freezer and there are scads more under-developed pods still out on the vines, I predict we will have more than enough of them to last us all winter.
I thought my yellow wax beans and green beans were ready to be picked, too, but I must not have looked very carefully as this is all I got today. The bowlful is nearly all green ones with just a few yellow ones on top. That's okay as I had plenty of peas to keep me more than busy.
But I'm sure the beans will start coming in like gangbusters shortly. Then more peas for sure. And I'm thinking there will be our second picking of blueberries ripe and ready tomorrow. When the garden starts producing, it sure does keep the gardener hopping.
