Help!

Help I am drowning in peas!lol... We harvested the first round of peas on Saturday......this is what the back of dh truck looked like minus six bushels of peas.....

 the truck is a 3/4 ton full size bed on the truck.....this is what we brought home after giving away the six bushels of peas......lots of shelling going on here.....my mom and I are canning and freezing these....my dad, dh and I picked from 7am until 3pm and still had four rows left unpicked......the green peas that were not ready will need to be picked again this coming week......which is more than we picked this go round.....plus the cukes and squash will be ready oh, don't let me forget the eight rows of okra will be ready to cut also.....my back, arms, legs and muscles that I had no idea I had hurt like crazy.....my fingertips are so sore from picking and shelling......how was your labor day? Mine was truly a day of labor....but in a good way, we are truly blessed by Gods' bounty in our garden.....

Until next time,
Wendy

Nothings better than fresh peas from the garden, and I think you're set for awhile! One question, what type of peas are these, as I've never seen them this color?
