The First Harvest

I feel like a little kid!!!  I am giddy and its all because of a few sugar snap peas!!!  Silly... Yes, I know... BUT I grew these ALL ON MY OWN!  Yup, the first harvest from my own garden. 

Aren't they beautiful? 

Let me tell you, they are D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!

I realize that its not a huge bunch, but 21 and there were just as many if not more on the vines still fattening up.  So I decided I couldn't wait anymore and I just had to harvest these. 

The peas are sweet as sugar, and they are ginormous!!!  What?! You don't believe me???  Ok, then just take a look at these...

oh, still not impressed.... well then, how about these?

All the peas were this size!!!

I put them into a potato salad with tuna, raw just like you see.  Let me tell you they were the best peas I have tasted in a LONG time! 

No, I didn't take a picture of the salad... I was too anxious to eat it to remember to take out the camera!

Hopefully I will be harvesting tomatoes and peppers soon!
