Peas and Artichokes – a survival story.

English Shelling Peas for pastaAfter moving abruptly to our new place, the garden at our old house suffered to say the least.  We recently went back to get a few stray items and were pleasantly surprised to see a load of shelling peas and artichokes waiting to be harvested! No water except for the rain.  No fertilization or weeding. These poor plants probably even survived a dozen or so trampling incidents at some beer fueled ragers thrown by the new tenants.  freshly picked spring artichokesShelling peas are a time consuming vegetable to prepare but they are worth every minute. Especially prepared in a pasta dish with fresh linguini and artichokes with grana padano. MMMMMMmmmm.linguini with peas and artichokes
