Three years into gardening, I finally feel as though I've gained a tiny bit of wisdom regarding it. For example, once my peas finished a few weeks ago, I pulled them up and replaced them with eggplant and green pepper plants, hoping to get two crops (of different vegetables) out of my containers this summer. My Mesclun greens are still going strong after two months, but I expect July's heat will zap them if June's doesn't. I recently learned that I can sow more lettuce seeds in September for a fall crop, so that's what I'll do. We are loving these greens (and are enjoying not paying ridiculous prices for them at the farmers market)!
My green beans are exploding right now. I have no idea how I'll find let alone pick them all before they rot.
How do people with large gardens have time to do it all? I can barely keep up with the two small boxes and six containers that I have.
