Picking Peas

We’ve had a good garden season so far. I don’t think we’ll ever get rich off of peas as all we’ve harvested is around $30 worth at Costco but they taste wonderful and it’s nice to have such great food at our fingertips.

I’m surprised we have any peas left as most of the kids that visit our place snack wildly on the pea plants.

That’s a big bowl of peas.

We have so many beets and zucchini that we don’t know what to do with them all. We are dehydrating beets now and Rosebud is getting fat on all the beet greens. We are about a week away from her calving so the milk is going to flow right during harvest season.

There’s never a lack of work here on the farm. Anyone want to get rid of their teenager for the rest of the summer we have plenty of manual labor for them.
