‘qwacking’ [cracking] peas

Pluck the plump pods from their vines.
Assemble your tools: chairs, sorting buckets—to be shelled, peas, empty pods.
Get ‘qwacking’.
Exclaim, “Whoa this is a big one!” after every other pod.
Squeal with glee each time a pod explodes and a pea escapes.
Feel the morning sun warm your back as the fog burns off and the evidence of a real “summer” day arrives.
Take a little ‘west’ (Hooway for Wodney Wat, anyone?!) to cool off in the shade.
Hold the little globes of green goodness in your palms and wonder at the miracle of it all.
Repeat as needed.
Good for young and old, alike.
