Saturday’s post was well timed as today is the start of Great British Pea Week. The pea harvest is June to August and an estimated 480 billion individual peas are picked. The average Briton eats 9000 peas in a year. The world record for the most peas eaten with a cocktail stick in 30 seconds is 38 and is held by former cricketer Freddie Flintoff (something you can try at home). Further interesting facts are contained in an article in today’s “i” which is entitled “Give Peas a chance”. I have come across that somewhere else I think!
