From My Cold Dead Hands
While tending a garden can sometimes become tedious: weeding and watering and pruning, weeding and watering and pruning. The benefits of being able to go into your garden to pick fresh vegetables–no preservatives, no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers–is rewarding.
Gardening is healing and is proven to promote good health and wellness. Besides, we should all learn to be a tad more self-sustaining. I believe that having that trowel in hand is what oftentimes keeps me centered! What are your thoughts on tending a garden? Do you believe that gardening is therapeutic? How does your garden grow!

Quote of the Day for YOU: I never had any other desire so strong, and so like to covetousness, as that one which I have had always, that I might be master at last of a small house and a large Garden. ~Abraham Cowley, The Garden, 1666
