More Garden Goodies...

WE have been Harvesting many good thingys from OUR garden...
     These are Sugar Snap  or Snow Peas...      We love them Right from the Vines,  They are so Crunchy and Delicious...   We NEVER miss a chance to be right there when SHE is picking THOSE...   Butt,  SHE is sort of STINGY with them...      SHE says that they are Fabulous to Pick and Blanch in HOT WATER and then put in an ICE BATH...  (can you believe THAT?)  
    She puts two Round thingys of Ice in the water and then lets the peas cool totally ...
and Drains and Dries them...  and then puts them in the FREEZER fur putting in Soups and stuffs...  
   It is like SUMMER eating in the WINTER...


Mom and dad ALSO like them  RAW in Salads.... and   to cook and have with butter over them...
    We eat them cooked... butt they are BEST Fresh from the vine...    Just sayin...

My mom loves the snow peas. I've never tried them myself.

maybe that icy water is impawtant because they are snow peas and otherwise the snow will melt away? they are tasty fresh from the vine and it's great to have them with a giant t-bone steak... I will add it to my mommas shopping list :o)

Oh My Pug!!! Those look positively DELISH!
I have been doing a bit of harvesting in our backyard as well . . . tomatoes off the vine, strawberries off the vine, green apples off the branch. Mommy wonders what is taking me so long to do my bidness. Well, Lady, I am HARVESTING!

We love snap peas. We put them in stir fry, steam them with other vegetables, or eat them raw. (Do they stay crisp when you freeze them like that?)

Our tomato plants are doing super this year, last year they hardly grew, and we get to have a cherry tomato sometimes - hazel goes crazy for maters! The peas on the other hand are not doing as well.

We love snap peas. We have been getting them in our local farm basket (we buy a veggie share cause Lady has a black thumb).

We have just started eating beans and we love them. Mom dehydrated some Italian green beans yesterday. We will ask her for snow peas next time!
