Just living is not enough, said the butterfly. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
~Hans Christian Andersen
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
As long as one has a garden, one has a future. As long as one has a future, one is alive.
~Frances Hodgson Burnett, “The Secret Garden”
Unemployment is capitalism’s way to get you to plant a garden.
-Orson Scott Card
If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.
Weather means more when you have a garden. There’s nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans.
All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.
A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handyman with a sense of humus.
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
