OK, caught in the act of snipping the buds off basil while walking through a community garden in DC. I couldn't help myself. Our children were appalled. "This isn't your garden; stop touching!" "Didn't you learn anything in Queens?!" Hey, it was a community garden on federal land or so I was told by the runner who stopped to stretch. So I considered it my civic duty and all that. Besides, it looked like it could use some TLC: lots of weeds and plenty of ripe peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and other treats. How sad, all that food just sitting there. If anyone is interested, the garden is near the Air & Space Museum.
