Peas, please

I love raw peas. I’d rather have them than candy, so I planted peas in several places in the yard this year. I invert a tomato cage for them to grow on, coiling then ends around so I don’t poke myself in eye. I love the way the tendrils coild around the wire of the tomato cage.

I went to a fancy restaurant once (the private one in the land of D) that served the tendrils as part of a meal. It was so ridiculous I had to try it. I can confirm that pea tendrils are edible, but they are definitely not food.
