Excellent pic of the peas, Farmerdill ! Even peas deserve photo of the day! I remember as a kid filling my front shirt with them and then sitting under the maple tree eating them like candy. Those were the days ;-)

They deserve a place right next to my mash potatoes too. LOVE fresh peas! I eat them raw too, Kin! Farmerdill always has great photos! As a child I would sneak into my neighbor's veggie garden and sit in among the tomatoes and just eat them till I was sick. Gosh I was a bad neighbor!
