Lessons about gardening, #2

No, it can’t wait until tomorrow.

No, you can’t wait to thin the arugula. It doesn’t like being crowded and it will bolt.

Ditto for the spinach.

No, you can’t wait to water the lettuce. It will wilt and be useless in the near-record heat and dry weather.

No, you can’t wait to lay the soaker hose. You’re just making your job harder.

No, you can’t wait to pick the zucchini. They grow into giants overnight.

No, you can’t wait to weed. No, really, you can’t.

No, you can’t wait to plant the next round of seeds. Well, you can, but it will be that much longer between harvests.

No, you can’t wait to write that blog post. There will be something new tomorrow.
