Have you ever had the pleasure of having a midsummer afternoon pea party? No? Well, let me fill you in.

Required are a small amount of sweet peas (fresh off the vine if you can manage that!), a small child with a willing appetite, a large dog with an always willing appetite and a patient Momma with a camera at the ready. Once all these things are gathered, all that is needed is a patch of sunny grass and some fingers with which to open said peas.

The toddler reveled in pulling peas off the vine and slowly discovered that he could (oh my goodess!) bite into these green pods and that they tasted good! Then he discovered that, hey, the inside balls taste better than the outside – and that the dog LOVES the shells.

What followed was a good forty minutes of pea heaven – for all.
