Morning Glory Farm is bringing a bit of friendly competition to the growing fields. Sure they have farming down, but what about all those homegrowers out there? To inspire more green thumbs, the farm is sponsoring a pea competition. First peas to be brought into the farm from a backyard grower wins a $50 gift certificate and, more important, an honorary sash and crown to wear all summer long. Queen Pea or King Pod, who knows who will emerge victorious.
Oh, and one more prize — Chef Robert will cook up the peas into a delicious meal.
Peas must be one cup, raw and shelled.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your rototillers.
