Pea tendrils are the first salad green

Pea tendrils

We had another nibble of spring last week --- pea tendrils from the pot of peas we started indoors.  The tendrils taste just like snowpeas, and are a sure antidote to the frozen winter diet.

If you need some immediate gratification, pea tendrils are the way to go, requiring just over two weeks from (indoor) planting to first taste.  Our little pot made just enough pea tendrils for a garnish for two, but one week later, the peas are nearly ready to be cut again!

This is the same stage of growth that our outdoor peas were at last spring when the whistlepigs discovered them.
