Most of the vegetables we grow are annuals.  Every year we have to fight weather and soil conditions to get them planted.  Many have to be seeded in heated greenhouses and transplanted.   Because they are annuals, they are programmed to flower, fruit/set seed and die. Then we have to compost or turn under the remaining plants and prepare the ground for the next crop.  It’s a continuing, and sometimes exhausting cycle.
