my island life
I dislike doing that immensely ... why can't we just boil them with the shells on??
I always start out feeling good, doing this. After a while, the finger that opens the pod gets sticky, and sore between skin and nail.
Thank you Will, I might just give your idea a try Ruthibelle, but I have a feeling that that sticky stuff that GG mentioned might not taste so good....and yes GG, I feel the same way. all enthusiasm at the beginning and sore at the end. I don't like the little caterpillars either!
I love this poem. I can imagine it in a meditative sound loop as one shells the peas over and over... I just planted my peas a few days ago.
peggy thank you..for getting exactly where and how this poem came from..................hope you enjoy yours xxx
Shelling peas is one of my more favorite jobs, I don't like to eat them raw I just like podding the peas.
hi Glennis, nice to see you here, ah yes, think we might be speaking of different 'peas'. ours grow on a little tree and have to be cooked, or you can leave them to dry ....the shelling thing is the same though :)
thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
