Keeping Up With the Garden

In her column Greenpoint over at the DG, my colleague Margaret Hartley writes about the difficulty of keeping up with the garden - something I've been having difficulty with, as well.

Here's an excerpt:

"The garden is coming in fast and furious now, furious being the operating word. If we don’t pick every day, or several times a day, we’re in big trouble. And someone gets mad.

'HEY! How come no one picked the beans?' someone will say. 'Why has all the lettuce bolted?' someone else will offer. Or 'HEY! Why are these cucumbers so gigantic?'

My new morning routine includes picking time, which comes after dog-walking time and before critter-feeding time. A basket of cucumbers and summer squashes, a big bag of basil tops for pesto — Quick! Before the basil bolts! — and several cabbages."
