Notes

I can remember planting peas & picking them, takeing them to the house and spending many hours shelling them, until my thumbs hurt. Some was put up for next year's planting, the rest was for eating. My Granny Clouse would put them on the wood stove that was used for heat & cook them all day. Almost as good as a crock pot today, just had to watch the water and stir alot.
