Last week it was my nearly three year old who informed me she wanted "whole eating peas" and not "opening peas". We ventured to the garden to collect our supplies and she proceeded to munch.
Today on a pea hunt there were handfuls of spinach being eaten straight from the garden. But best of all it was my one year old who wandered back into the house with a pea in hand. He has discovered the joy of picking the peas out of the opened pods.
