Default I'm sick of.....peas! What are you sick of?

Peas, peas, peas, and more peas.


Every 3-4 days, I have at least 13 gallons of peas to pick, shell, wash,
blanch, and freeze. Do this every year, but seem to have a lot more
than usual.

Not really sick of them, but they (& the work mostly) are getting rather
*old*. LOL. Was even seeing them in my sleep last night...go figure!

What have you had excess of in your garden this year that you are *sick* of?

Nothing yet, but I'm just starting to harvest.

I have a recipe someplace for a "fresh pea" soup that is tasty, cool and
minty.

I'll take that recipe, please, if/whenever you have time to find it & copy.

BTW: don't think email went thru yesterday, but you have snail mail on

We're not doing anything on that scale, but we do have lots of hot
peppers (about 2 dozen plants, roughly, most of which are bearing
well). And, you see, one doesn't put very much hot pepper in each
dish.

My boyfriend assures me that we'll just have more to freeze this way.
I'm wondering whether he is planning on activating the currently
unused basement chest freezer just for his peppers :-).

As for peas, we planted only a short row of edible pod peas (reduces
the shelling, at least). Next year I'll grow more if I can think of
where to put them.

The local deer took out our Malabar this year and almost everything
else. Shot one in the ass with my BB gun who was munching our baby
Japanese maples.

Guess you know sweet potato vines can be used the same way.

PS new neighbor asked if his dad can hunt on our lands.

You can make hot pepper vingar...if y'all like hot sauces...
I have put up 6 quart jars of it so far with my extra cayennes.

our peas are crowders & black eyes varieties.

main type (ie, the ones I am constantly picking) are dixielees, purple
hull, and cow-eyes

By Duh I meant it was a given or please do. These guys hunt in Montana
every year. Not stupid by a long shot. Pun.

Serious hunters that eat their kills.

Deer here eat everything as do the new ground hogs that came here in
the last three years. I'd guess habitat loss is the reason for the
encroaching loss of our gardens.

Yeah, I figured that.........but these self-proclaimed "rednecks" around
here aren't too bright, if they think they are going to find deer in
fenced in pastures....

I can eat my weight in peas, I love them. I have grown tired of
zucchini--the more you pick the more they produce, and the neighbor
are sick of them. I have lots of tomatoes (early girl, better boy,
big boy, Rutgers, beefsteak, grape and cherry), not sick of them yet.
Tomatoes are doing exceptionally well this year.

my hubby can too...but he doesn't have to do the work! lol
seriously now, we both love peas, that's why we grow so many in the
garden. So I can freeze the extras to cook off-season. But this year, it
just seems to be too much....maybe because of the fact we have 2 babies
this year, instead of just the one, so garden time is more limited....

we didn't grow zukes this year....also plenty of maters, not sick of
them either as there are so many ways and things you can make with them.
