2011 Pea Harvest Final Results: Over 10 Bushel!

We picked 14 five gallon buckets (=10.5 bushel) of peas over the course of 4 days, with various helpers, including of course Lars and Sam, but also Jens, Grammy and Aunt Ruth (they came down on Sunday afternoon).  The reason we got all those peas processed was the “magical” electric pea sheller at a local Mennonite Farm.  We gave some of the peas to family and friends and froze and canned the rest.

  • 71 bags of frozen corn (each about 3 cups)
  • 20 quart jars of canned peas (one jar broke in the canner or there would have been 21)
