Time to Daydream

March 17, 2011

“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.”
~ Helen Hayes

“The trouble with gardening is that is does not remain an avocation. It becomes an obsession.”
~ Phyllis McGinley

“Your first job is to prepare the soil. The best tool for this is your neighbor’s garden tiller. If your neighbor does not own a garden tiller, suggest that he buy one.”
~ Dave Barry

“When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.”
~ Author Unknown

“Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it.”
~ Author Unknown

“I’m not really a career person. I’m a gardener, basically.”
~ George Harrison

I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day.
~ F. Frankfort Moore

    My tomato plant is potted and in the frront garden. Rosemary on the back steps, and Oregano growing like crazy. Won’t be long before you will have a garden also. Thank you for all the great posts.

    As the weather’s warmed, we’ve been dealing with heavy rains and flooding here in Cincinnati. Yesterday, the ground was finally solid enough to walk on so I took a stroll around my gardens. All of my garlic is up and about (yay! 100% germination), oregano and thyme are sending out new growth, and – very excited – my blueberry bushes have buds on them (at three years old, this year should produce the first significant harvest). I’m looking forward to blueberry pie in June.

    Wonderful to see on this first full day of Spring. We are getting 5-8 inches of snow as we speak. 😦
