Fun! Nothing like fresh peas. I like to just eat them in the garden.

You can shell them and steam them if you like. Yes, put them in a stirfry too.

Don't let them get too large before you eat them. They are best when about as big around as a pencil. They get tough and starchy if let to get too mature.

Thanks I know one of them might be ready now, nut I think I will wait at least 2 or 3 more days before picking to let some of the other ones to catch up. Any certain way to pick them when I do? :D Tammy
