Pea Shucking anyone????

What have we gotten our selves into?????

10 rows of green arrow, 2 rows of OTHER garden peas, 10 rows of Snap Peas........

Here is what a picking looks like..... Worth it... hopefully..... Takes 1 1/2- 2 hours to pick one kind, and about an hour to SHUCK the garden peas to get about 14 C. Then there is the De-stringing of the snap peas and the blanching/steaming of both.... and then freezing them!!!!!!!

Snap Peas (11.5 lbs!)

Garden Peas (14 C. worth after shucking!)
What it looks like when we make our kids shuck them! They usually eat more than they shuck though!!!!!

I tried to grow some in the earlier part of the seasonn and they did terrible...I've replanted hoping for some in the fall...I'd be tickled if they grew as good as yours! They look wonderful!!!!
