Processing pea seed

I shelled and processed the Onward pea seed I saved this year.

First step was to remove the floaters.

Then drain the water to dry the seed.

Thankfully it was mildly windy, on and off.  So put the seeds out in the sun for the afternoon.

And the last step once they were dry was to put them in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer for three days, after which they were removed and put away in storage in the house.  Some will be replanted next Spring, and the rest used for cooking over the Winter.
