"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace."
I have a new love.
"The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul."
It's only been mine for less than a week and already it's grown.
"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."
My little plant babies are standing taller already and reaching up towards the sun.
"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. "
I'm pretty much in love. Come January I'll have broccoli and cauliflower and carrots and onions and mustard greens and lettuces (butter and speckled and red) and bok choy. That makes me so ridiculously happy.
