All I can say is snow peas, snow peas, and more snow peas. I have been harvesting snow peas for about 10 days. At first I was getting a quarter pound a day, then a half pound a day, then a quart sized pickle jar a day, and finally two quarts per day.
I have harvested 5.21 pounds of snow peas from one 4x8 bed. This variety is Oregon Sugar Pod II and instead of bearing over a long period of time, for me they seem to produce all within 2 weeks and then taper off. I compared my numbers from last year and I got 6.61 lbs, but that was from three 4x8 beds and two different varieties. I am not sure what my final numbers will be, but I am guessing around 8 lbs. I am ready to yank them out so I can plant some stuff in their place.
Needless to say we have been eating our weight in snow peas and they are so much better fresh then frozen. I have already put away about 9 freezer bags worth. This year I just froze them straight from the garden, no rinsing, no blanching, nothing. Last year I blanched them before freezing and they were so limp and soggy when cooked. I am hoping this way they will maintain their crispness a little longer.
My daughter also has caught the snow pea bug and will eat them. I steam them with a little garlic salt and add a touch of spray butter before serving them to her and she gobbles them up. I don't know if she likes the taste or the promise of a popsicle if she finishes them, but who am I to complain. I am just glad she is eating them.
