Big space in my backyard is for berries. Side yard has big strawberry patch which is in full production mode right now. Raspberry is crowding in the space by the fence. It might seem like all I post is berry harvest but it’s been that way for past weeks and may continue for 1-2 more.
On Sunday, we picked strawberries and raspberries. It was a huge harvest, photo above is what lest after snacking, sharing with visitor and neighbor.
I had not picked peas for some time, pea vines are slowly drying. Even though I am growing shelling peas, I like to eat the whole pods for snack. I don’t wait till it all swells up, I am picking peas when they are smaller. Thankfully variety I am growing isn’t fibrous, I am able to eat whole thing. Tuesday I picked basket full of peas and again strawberries.
