Celebrate Pea Shoots, February’s Harvest of the Month

Though the ground is covered in snow and the wind chills are bringing us below zero, the length of sunlight is getting longer every day. Once again it is easy to grow pea shoots in a sunny windowsill or greenhouse, an act that can tide you over until the ground thaws and you can make it out to the garden. Packed with nutrients to keep you healthy in the cold weather, look for local pea shoots at the groccery store or try to grow your own. Check out our information poster to find serving suggestions and shopping/growing tips for pea shoots. Try your hand at making Chef Robin's pea shoot pesto, a treat in this cold weather.
