When I was growing up my sister always insisted that I eat my English peas that she prepared  from a can.  I hated them.  It was always a battle to get them down, but to please her, I always did.  When I started gardening, I decided to grow fresh peas only because I loved how they looked on the vine, not because I wanted to eat them.   BUT, what a wonderful surprise when I tasted this succulent little vegetable.   DELICIOUS and sweet!!!
