Essentials From the Garden

Essential advice for the gardener: 

Grow peas of mind, 
Lettuce be thankful,
Squash selfishness, 
Turnip to help thy neighbor, 
And always 
Make thyme for loved ones.
            – Unknown (but I wish I could claim it)
Tomatoes, Oil, Herbs, Cook, Dry, Oven
A society grows great when people plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
               – Greek proverb
The peace of the gardens and the kindly lights in the windows poured a tender influence into his restless heart.
               – James Joyce

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing. John 15:5
