To start shell your peas. This is the hard part. I had no clue how many peas I had when I began shelling them. I only picked one row of peas, but they were loaded. I actually sat through 1 1/2 movies while shelling these peas!! So they went in the fridge until I could get them frozen. I had two of the 2 lb margarine tubs completely filled. I had a third one that was half filled which we ate for dinner the next day.
I was so tickled that I got 6 pints of peas to put in my freezer. We normally only get enough to eat some fresh and maybe freeze a pint or two. We have another row that is almost ready to pick. My mom will pick this row to put in her freezer!!
