Pea podder’s thumb

peasAnd what a fun injury to have. My thumb nail is aching from podding so many peas. Oh poor you.   And indeed this fantastic glut does cause small inconveniences.   Sore thumb; aching jaws from insisting on chewing the empty pods; tired limbs from standing up and podding like mad.

I don’t know quite why I don’t choose a good place in the shade to sit down and shell the peas; but it’s cooler inside the house.
