Owen helped me pick our first picking of peas this week. He loves to go in the garden, but I'm not sure the plants enjoy him treking through.
We developed a little system in order to preserve the pea plants and future picking opportunities: Mommy holds the plant and shows Owen which pea to pick. Owen pulls (usually quite vigorously) the pea off the plant and puts it in his bucket.
The boy surprisingly likes the peas raw straight out of the garden or steamed at dinner.
