Keremeos gardenIn the scheme of things, be it an edible lawn in the suburbs, a five-acre homestead, or a hobby-sized container garden, none of us set off growing food in the hopes of producing too little. We aim to feed ourselves. Many of us strive for more. We want over-abundance, more food than we know what to do with, breakfasts literally falling from the trees and lunches sprouting up from the ground. Believe it or not, sometimes that happens.

For those of us who have not set off with the purpose of agriculture as our livelihood, when…if…fingers crossed we are so successful as to encounter the problem of over-abundance, we need not panic. Take a moment, relish it (mentally, culinarily, however you choose), and realize that a huge harvest doesn’t equate to eating mangoes or tomatoes thrice daily for the foreseeable future.
