One of my most favorite memories growing up is in the summer when we would go and pick fresh black eyed pea's from a garden, go home, and sit and shell pea's while watching tv. I still have the bowl I used to shell them with and still use it to shell today. My friend Cynthia had told Sherise and I that we could go out and pick pea's if we wanted to, and we had to take her up on the offer! I mean...those pea's would die if we didn't. We did it for the pea's...
Another friend of mine that has had a garden in the past and has let me pick from it, knows how much I love to shell them myself. She thought she was doing a nice thing by shelling them for me one time and I was so sad because I didn't get to shell them myself.
