Green Peas

The Pea seedlings I planted in early spring are ready to harvest. They did not grow as big as I thought they would but started flowering few days back followed by these beautiful green pods. I didn't get a chance to cook the peas, we just ate them raw as soon as they were picked. This was the first time I ever tasted peas fresh from the vine. They were tender and sweet.
Green peas are going to be a regular in my garden from now on every year. They are so easy maintenance. Just water them alternate day. I think they tolerate some shade but I can see that the ones in full sun giving more yield.
