Black-Eyed Peas

The garden is starting to show the stress of this intense heat we're having right now, and despite our best efforts to keep the back garden watered, the plants are suffering.  We've decided to pick and choose which ones we're going to continue to baby along.  Some are reaching the end of their natural cycle anyway, so I'm concentrating on picking and processing those first.  

These are the entire crop of Mississippi Silver Cow Peas.  They've been drying on the plants, so John's not going to water them anymore and I'm picking them.  Some are completely dry and the others will dry out fast.

Here's one pod's worth of peas from one that was completely dry.  I know, I can probably buy a pound of black-eyed peas at the store for less than a dollar, but you don't get to pick a cool variety like this!
