Grateful harvest

These are the first fruits of our garden. It was all the snails and slugs felt they could spare. They are less sweet than many sugar snap peas I have had. I am not sure why. Thankfully, they are not lacking in snap.



  1. I've got a small garden in my yard and have grown sugar snap peas. Those look like you may have picked them too soon for them to have time to sweeten. In my experience, the sweetest snap peas look like they've got air pockets in them. First they lengthen, then they thicken, and it's not till they're a bit thicker than those ones that they're really delicious.

  2. Ooooh. Good comment! Thanks! I will wait a little longer this time... will the snails give me any more time??? I hope so. AHHH!

  3. My mom sent me a link to your blog and I've been reading through it. I worked on an organic farm for a season, and I was about to post the same thing as Kevin! Once you have them fully ripened from your garden you will never ever want to go back to store bought peas.
    Happy farming!
