“It may be too easy to underestimate the power of a garden.” Wendell Berry
“To farm or garden is to become acquainted with amazement and bewilderment in the presence of the world.” Norman Wirzba
We have a small vegetable garden at our house, and for most of the summer and early fall, a favorite routine is walking out with my wife and daughter to see the garden. We might pick a few weeds, but we’re really there to see the progress. It’s exciting to see plants growing and fruit ripening every day. The best days arrive after several weeks when the hard work pays off and we get to pick something.
