Here I am - the farm hand - in all my sun-hatted, latex-gloved, pea-picking glory. 

My mouth isn't usually shaped like that, for the record - I was trying to say something clever, like that I'm peeved about all these peas, and the photographer caught me mid-pun...

It's summer, folks, and the overabundance of harvest season has begun.  For you, maybe this means delight at the farmers' market, or a surge in home canning from your garden's cornucopia of veggie-goodness. 
For me, this means picking peas.  Lots of peas.  Or, as the Mexicans would say, muchos pinches chícharos!

After a 14 hour day last Friday, which culminated in 5 hours of all hands on deck to pick every single ripe pea on the field, sugar snap peas (as delicious as they are) have become our collective nemesis.

The peas are nearly done with, but June is just the beginning... I'm bracing myself for the tomato harvest - it's gonna be a doozy.

Are those peas growing up a trellis of support? Or are they free-standing bushes. I can see how you'd be tired of peas!

Yep, they're freestanding bushes - the only supports are the dense network of weeds!

And 14 hours! It must be both tedious and wonderful at the same time.

The joy in the faces of farm girls at the time of harvest is such a pleasant sight. I love to watch when they reap. Such beautiful sights are disappearing from the world. Farming is present in only limited states in the whole nations.
