Few vegetables are tastier than fresh picked peas. Maybe corn but you usually have to cook it rather than snack. I've picked peas right off the vine for a snack while I'm working in the garden.

They can't take the 100 plus degree heat that comes out of it. They grew but only produced enough peas for a few snacks. That's okay. It was just a test to see if they would grow.

Peas are much more than just that yucky green mush we feed...
