Aren't they perfect? I realize that to very many of you, battering floods and gales and ice storms and snow, plus whatever else the heavens are unleashing on CAA in Chicago, that it's an act of consummate cruelty to post images of peas that have been freshly gathered in from the bottom of the garden. So organic, so pesticide-free are they that the pods were as delicious as the peas themselves. I now wish that I'd planted five times as many plants, but I don't know that I truly believed that they'd flower and grow and ripen and flourish in quite such a satisfactory way. And yes, there was a whole (small) bowl of them - I just isolated these ones to make a point about their beauty.
