It’s Food Every season, there’s prepping, planting, tending, weeding, baby crops, and then suddenly, food. That’s where were at. I went out to the garden and saw someone had harvested peas and left them on the picnic table for others to enjoy. I wondered how the peas were doing. Were we getting many ripe ones? Oh, my! Two rows of peas from Territorial Seed have exploded into productivity. We must pick them and enjoy them because that keeps the plants producing. If peas stay on the vines, the plant gets a signal that it’s okay to die. Nope, not okay with us. Basil is so very ready for gardeners to enjoy. Here’s how to harvest basil. What else? Spinach, lettuce, mustards, pac choi, and other greens are ripe and delicious.
