My first round of ripe garden peas appeared in early June. I plopped my baby girl in between the raspberry bushes and the cantaloupe vines to play in the mulch while I harvested a heaping bowl full of sweet, delicious peas. Her interest piqued as my husband and I sat, opening the pods and munching. Soon she demanded on sampling some for herself. She packed her cheeks full, then started chewing on the pod. It made me a proud momma to see so much green going eagerly in to her tummy. I watched her a few weeks later crawl through the forest of zucchini, and plop herself in front of the row of peas, carefully selecting the big pods and going to town. Granted, she about uprooted the whole plant as she pulled the pods off the plant but I just thought it was too adorable to even care.
My second round of planting has just proven fruitful, and we went outside today to sample a few.
I’ve been trying to do some more botanical themed art for her nursery so I came up with this printable….
