At the start of April Residents within the Nursing Home planted some small pea seedlings and we have tended to them and watched them bloom and grow over the past few months.
We were all surprised to see how big they had grown and started to pick them earlier this week after all the lovely weather had made them really sprout.
It was a real team effort with many residents helping pick the peas – as you can see from our photographs below and everyone loved being outside in the good weather.
Eamon, Hilda, David, Debbie and Pat loved the smell of the peas and Karen, Desmond, Gordon, Michael and Fiona had a wee reminisce about days gone by where many of us helped pick peas and beans in our younger days.
Once the peas were picked Karen gave them to our Chef Paul who will add them to a delicious vegetable soup for our lunch.
