Pea Pod Pickin’

First harvest!

So, this morning Bill and Julia went out to pick peas.

The plants had grown so tall, Bill got the ladder for Julia.

She’s a great help.

She ate one, during the picking, and her teeth took on a bluish tinge for a little while.  I didn’t take a picture.  Sorry.

And here’s one of the “older” pods, with obvious little peas formed inside.

Time to answer the question – what color will the peas be?

Turns out they’re green.

Fair enough.

After all, the name of them is Blue Podded Blauwschokker, not Blue Pea Blauwschokker.
