Split Pea Vegetable Soup

This recipe originated with the master chef of our family—my father-in-law. It freezes so well that frequently I'll cook up a double batch of soup. My husband, our two sons (14 and 12) and I live on 70 acres outside of town. I enjoy crafts. But I'm every bit as happy plowing fields or baling hay!
