Blackeyed Peas

When Grandmom Stone found out we're going to plant blackeyed peas in the experimental garden next year, she was pretty pleased. During WWII, she helped her grandfather grow blackeyed peas in their Victory Garden. When the peas were ripe, she helped her grandmother snap them and can them to send to her father was overseas. Her advice to us is to toughen up our thumbs - snapping peas is hard work!
