WEEKLY MEAL WRAP UP

What a welcome addition the hearty cow peas  (or blackeyed peas) were to our 100 foot diet.  These creamy white and black spotted beauties brought back childhood memories.  Growing up on our 10 acres in Florida black eyed peas were one of the crops we grew and were readily available (and cheap) in local supermarkets.

Give me some blackeyed peas and cornbread any day of the week!   Yep, still a southern girl at heart.

    those cow peas look good! We grew some for the first time this year, and it was great to be able to pick the dried pods, and then cook the beans that night. They cooked a bit faster than if they had cured longer, and what I like about them is they produce lots of beans in each pod. Should be in every gardener’s plot! I’m also investigating growing rare and hard to find heirloom beans–have you seen what some companies get for a 1lb. bag of those? Yes-$4-5.00/lb.!! So grow the beans you like, and that do well in your area, save plenty of them for next year, and you’ll be doing yourself and the world a favor.
