Right now I’m not harvesting anything. The beans are still sizing up, the tomatoes have gone on strike, the figs are the size of my fingernail, and the onions are taking their sweet time. I’m still trying to figure out what is wrong with the tomatoes. It could be too much chicken poop (the chickens like to take dust baths there and scratch for bugs) or it could be that I didn’t water it enough.
Gardening in the real world can humble you. No matter how many books you’ve read, or how much you think you know, sometimes you still can’t tell whether or not a bean should be picked, if a tomato is ripe, or if you planted enough. All you can do is wait and hope and get some experience (or not).
