Harvest Monday - May 13 2013 Snow peas!

I have been continually harvesting arugula to give a little spice to my salads but I have also started to harvest some snow peas. Still a little slow - and I'm worried the the hot weather will come soon and it will die before I get real harvests. But I will just have to see how it all goes. I really love the snow peas...I thought I'd miss the sugar snap peas, but I think I prefer the snow peas. Next year, I might decide to do both but for now I am glad I tried snow peas this year.
Snow peas
Very small harvest but delicious. I probably should have let some of them mature a little bit more but it was nice and tender. I made soboro-don which (my version) is flavored minced meat (soy sauce), scrambled eggs and snow peas over rice. It was really yummy. Next time I would love to have more greens!
Soboro-don - the star of the dish of course are the snow peas!
I am joining Daphne's Harvest Monday with my humble yet delicious harvest from last week! Happy gardening!


  1. that looks great! I once made Okonomiyaki with bok choy and peas and the from garden shiraae can be made with Arugula??

    do you grow japanese such as loquat which i sprouted,

    my son may start a blogger and youtube

    1. I think that you can make shiroae with anything you want. As long as you like the flavor. Let me know if your son starts his blog/youtube channel.

  2. Hi. I was doing a surprise for my subscribers of making a blog that has to do with gardening but I couldn't put one of you videos but I found your blog so I was able to promote your page. Check it out and let me know what you think. Have a nice day. nery

    1. Very cool Nery. Thank you. I haven't really been able to figure out how to connect youtube to blogger. I think there is some sort of widget to add to the bar but I don't really know how to do it:) Thanks for stopping by the blog!
