To forget how to dig the earthand to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Gardening is the purest of human pleasures. - Francis Bacon
The richest soil, if uncultivated, produces the rankest weeds.
In the end, there is really nothing more important than taking care of the earthand letting it take care of you.
- Charles Scott
