Can't argue with that. As gardening, (working with nature), first of all teaches patience, then acceptance, and finally tolerance - All of which generally make a better person. That is totally the opposite of selfish, greedy, and egotistical... Which almost everyone else now seems to be, in this modern day drive through type of or instant microwave kind of uncaring society.
I couldn't agree more Ronni!!
I understand that apartment dwellers are managing to build gardens
high above the madness of foot traffic and motor traffic.
I know I am
at peace while trusting the soil to generously supply me with food.
Thanks for this posting. You are a philosopher as well eh?
Ahhh but the other side of the generosity concept are those gardeners who planted all the seeds in the packet of Rutabaga and then spend a lot of time either begging neighbors to help themselves or the really desperate ones who sneak up and down the street at night putting bags of them on the neighbors front porch and running quickly into the shadows.
Toni, I am amused at the mental image you offered. Someone dressed in dark clothing, skulking along in the night, quietly placing bags of produce on steps and fleeing rapidly.
