    Peas? As in peas in a pod, green peas? That sort of peas?


    I used to make a salad with peas, cauliflower and onion.
    Saute the onion.
    Cook the peas and cauliflower (boiling it in water) until just tender. Drain.

    Add all the ingredients together and make a dressing with english mustard, vinegar and oil. Season to taste.

    I liked adding dill to the mix. Thought it needed a little lift and dill was my herb of choice for this recipe.

    Thank you for those suggestions.

    I tried finding for eggplant today at Costco, but they did not have any.

    Beautiful pictures!
    Our garden area is under snow today! Our pond has a thin layer of ice.

    I think that's the last of the beans.


    I made some tomato marinara sauce today. Had about 4 - 5 kilos of tomatoes that were red and ready. So, I cooked it with an onion, garlic and some oregano and basil (herbs from the garden). Will be freezing it for pasta sauce for the next couple of weeks.

    How big of an area do you need to grow beans?

    I only grew them in one of the flower beds. Probably a meter or so...and then stakes and/or trellis for them to grow.

    They do need some well fed soil to begin with.
