Congratulations to the West Tisbury School for bringing us the first full cup of peas today! This is the first time in all five years that a school garden has won the open contest. (And to think that not all that many years ago, Island schools didn’t even have vegetable gardens!)
Earlier … We’re eagerly awaiting the first measured cup of spring peas. The grower who brings in that first full cup will capture the title, regalia and prize.
Last year, repeat winner Thomas Hodgson brought us his peas on June 10. Will he claim the crown again this year, or is an upset brewing? We’ll keep you posted.
