Gardening and I don’t even have a green thumb which is seriously quite remarkable. As the summer comes to a close, it is probably timely that I give an update on what’s been happening in our wee little garden.
Take a look at these snap peas that came from our garden. Don’t they look amazing, vibrantly green and sautéed gently for dinner? We didn’t plan to have snap peas in our garden but through a few random acts, there they were.
Talk about not having a green thumb, I had no idea when to actually pick the snap peas so by the time we did eat them, they were uh…a little chewy and stringy. The snap peas were certainly sweet and had great flavour but most of it ended up on a side plate and not in our tummies.
Would we grow snap peas again? I’m not so sure. My big kid certainly loved watching them grow in the garden but they did seem to overtake our two tomato plants. So, once we picked the snap peas we got rid of the plants to make more space for the tomato plants. Who knew a few randomly placed snap pea seeds could take up SO MUCH SPACE?!
