It’s PYO Time!

So much beautiful produce in the fields to pick right now!  Blueberries, raspberries, corn, peas, and soon there will be fall raspberries and much more!

By the time we get home, the peas are seriously depleted because no one can resist snacking on these beauties.  That’s the great thing about these peas – they are delicious raw, steamed, boiled or even toss them in a basket on the grill.
