Pea Gardens Across the World (7/22/16)

Peas Across the World

Pea season is really starting to wind down now. Not as many photos are learking out there, but I managed to find a few jems to share this time around. Next week will be my season finale of “Pea Gardens Across the World”. For now enjoy a few more pictures of the peas from around the world.

Special note – I am currently working on a pea e-cookbook, should be out soon. Sign up for my email list to be notified when it comes out and how you can get it.

I love seeing all the recycled materials used in growing these peas. Not only are resources being saved and reused, it is very visually pleasing.

First photo today comes from Urban Edible Gardens. This company was founded by Esiah Levy in 2015. They use 100% recyclable materials in the gardening, .along with providing help with soil management – a very valuable but undervalued part of growing food. Check out their website and twitter feed to see what they are up to. I am sure you will be as impressed as I was.

Snow peas growing up your basic backyard fence. Classic, simple, and effective. Lots of places for the peas to grab a hold off.

Our next photo comes from Allison from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is growing snow peas, up a chain link fence. Simple and I like it!

Kristty from Johnstown, Pensylvania spend 2 hours of time harvesting and shelling these peas. After that she ended up with 6 pounds of peas. That’s a lot of shelling. How exciting to have that many when you are all done! Kristy is a YA fantasy writer, check out her website.

Chef Keith is on the rooftop harvesting some peas. I champion chefs who are NOT afraid to get their hands dirty and go to the source of their food. Better yet when they grow it or harvest it themselves.

What a beautiful set up here. The star of course is that bowl of peas ready to be enjoyed.

Cressida picked a beautiful setting to shell her peas.

Finally, this week I have peas from La Frasca, a Friulano-Italian restaurant in Halifax, Nova Scotia – a beautiful part of Canada that I need to make my way to some day. Make sure to follow them on twitter to see all the yummy things they are posting.

Alright that does it for another week of Pea Gardens Across the World. Do you have a photo to share? You can contact me at eric at thepeaproject.com or send me a message on twitter.
