    Even though legumes aren’t weeds, the Man Upstairs sure did make (after the Fall) nasty-tasting vegetables to afflict and torment children.

    Good one Lizzie, I don’t like peas either.

    Maybe if they were sweetened?

    I eat my peas with honey,
    I’ve done so all my life.
    It makes the peas taste funny,
    but they stick well to my knife.

    Funny how things taste so differently to each of us.. Peas are my favorite vegetable.

    (Actually, they’re a fruit… but you know what I mean :)

    Wait a minute!!!
    Templo SUD just said that peas were a legume.
    Now you are saying that they are a fruit.
    I think we should put it up for a vote!

    My husband hates peas, and his mother made him sit at the table until he ate every last one of them. They had a linoleum topped table with hollow chrome legs with removable caps. Guess where the peas went.

    Actually, vegetables can come from any part of the plant; leaves, stems, roots, seeds … and fruits. That’s why we call all plants vegetation. So while not all vegetables are fruit … all fruits are vegetation.

    Right! Let’s vote on what their DNA contains.


    That’s like the shrub & company thinking they could repeal the laws of physics.

    Peas are the fruit of a legume. Peanuts, on the other hand, actually grow as nodes on the roots of a legume.

    I’ve always hated cooked peas but really like raw peas. As a child, I used to hide as many of my cooked peas as possible under the last bit of mashed potato.

    My favorite pea story….some 55+ years ago in Elementary school…the Principal tried to force another little boy to eat his peas. She was making him put them in his mouth and swallow. Thinking back on it now, that’s the first time I ever witnessed projectile vomiting! “Get the custodian over here to table three!” I hope that Principal learned a lesson that day.
