Happy July 4th

The US flag of produce with berries was previously featured so the July 4th Face of Produce features the peas which are currently abundant in the garden.  We planted only shelling peas this year with the hope we could stock the freezer.  We have enough for freezing and to try Jamie Oliver's pea risotto recipe for dinner this evening.

Bruno and Kokee shelling peas.  Kokee loves the pod casings, who knew?

The broccoli is also a success this year, thanks to BT, an organic repellant of the pests that have previously destroyed the plants.

We had the company of Sammy for about a week, but he seems to have found a better home.
