Farm Tales- Peas, if you Please!

Every other Wednesday morning, I am working on a farm with a "working CSA membership".  Basically, I pay money to work on a farm and then receive a bunch of in-season organic produce.  :) It's definitely a win-win situation for the farm.  Thanks to my husband, I feel like I am on vacation every other Wed.  This was my view for the morning as I listened to peacocks, roosters, horses, and birds all around me. I never get 3 hours of peace like this!

Today we hoed & weeded around our tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. All our plants have a drip line watering them now, since it has been so incredibly dry here.  As a result, the weeds were growing full force next to our veggies.  I personally spent a lot of time harvesting snap peas, while consuming nearly as much as I picked. :)

We gathered a bunch of snap peas and I look forward to eating them as snacks, in dinners, and on salads.

We filled almost 2 bushels and half of a bushel is going to a local restaurant to be served to their customers.  Besides the snap peas, we received baby greens, dinosaur kale, rainbow chard, kohlrabi (which I have no idea what to do with this yet!), arugula, radishes, and broccoli.  As a bonus, I also got to get in the strawberry garden and pick a pint before I left.

Any recipe suggestions?
