I was in half a mind not to go to the Fuel for Schools stall today as it can be a bit hit-and-miss – easy to pick up stuff we really wouldn’t normally buy and probably shouldn’t be eating. For example, I now have three different types of mayonnaise in my fridge!
However, I could hardly believe my eyes to find practically a full box of sugar snap peas (grown in Worcestershire and still in date – as if they would be inedible ‘out-of-date’).
Going on my recent small crop, I wonder how many fields this took? I decided to de-pod the peas and freeze them for a rainy day, meaning I had actually quite a small tub. It really brought it home to me just how much land you need for a large crop of just about anything.
